Trivia: Claire Giannini Hoffman was the first woman to serve on the boards of Bank of America and Sears, Roebuck & Company. In 1949 Mrs. Hoffman became a director of the Bank of America, succeeding her father, A.P. Giannini (Amadeo Giannini). A.P. Giannini was the founder of the Bank of Italy, later renamed Bank of America, and of the Banca d'America e d'Italia in San Francisco, in 1904. The bank was established to serve working class citizens of the area, especially Italians living in San Francisco’s North Beach neighborhood. The bank survived the San Francisco earthquake and fire of 1906 and was one of the first to offer loans to businesses to help rebuild the city.
