John W. Boud, Jr., is the cashier of the Nephi National Bank and a representative business man of Nephi whose enterprise and progressive spirit are contributing in marked measure of the development of the city. He was born at Salt Lake City, June 1, 1881, and is a son of John W. and Elizabeth Boud. The father was born in Keokuk, Iowa, and the mother in Salt Lake City.

In the acquirement of his education John W. Boud passed through consecutive grades to his graduation from the Salt Lake high school and afterward won his Bachelor of Arts degree at the University of Utah. He then went to Germany, where he filled a mission for two years, and after being released from the mission he was traveling auditor in Europe for the International Harvester Company of America. His work in that connection took him to many European countries and brought him that wide knowledge and experience which can be gained in no other way as rapidly as in travel.

Returning to Salt Lake in 1905, he entered banking circles as teller in the Walker Brothers Bank, with which he was connected until he removed to Nephi to become cashier of the Nephi National Bank in July, 1917. He has since occupied this position and is a most popular official, doing everything in his power to promote the interests of the bank and protect the rights of its depositors and its stockholders. The bank is connected with the American Bankers Association and Mr. Boud has pursued a course of study and passed the examination of the American Bankers Association. This necessitated his going to New York city once each year while taking the course. He is a very energetic and enterprising young man and largely through his efforts the resources of the bank have been raised to five hundred thousand dollars, or more than doubled since 1917.

The officers of the Nephi National Bank are: J. S. Ostler, president; T. A. Foote, vice president; and Edgar S. Hills, A. J. Aagard, Ephraim Ellertson, I. H. Grave, Barton Brough, J. E. Ostler and George Francom, directors, in connection with the two officers.
