   Harrington Boyd has had a long and active career as a business man and merchant in Decater and Jennings County, and since the organization of the Union Trust Company of Greensburg has given all his time to that prospering institution in the capacity of secretary and treasurer. The Union Trust Company was organized in 1916, and in March of that year its total resources were about $440,000. The original officers were: John H. Christian, president; Louis Zoller, vice president; Harrington Boyd, secretary and treasurer; and other directors were W.W. Bonner, James B. Lathrop, Frank Robbins, James B. Woodfill, Isaac Sefton and William H. Robbins.
   At the close of 1918 the Union Trust Company made a showing of total resources of $562,000, with capital and surplus of $100,000 and with over $400,000 in savings deposits. The executive officers are the same today as in 1916. 
   Harrington Boyd was born November 18, 1863. in Jennings County, Indiana, son of William and Jane (Dickerson) Boyd. His father was a substantial farmer of Jennings County, and spent his life there where he died in 1906. He was an active democrat. He was twice married, and by his first wife had seven children and by the second one child, but Harrington is the only one now living.
   The latter received his early education in the public schools of Jennings County, attended college, and for four years taught school in Jennings and Decatur County, but later confined his stock to hardware and implements, and continued one of the successful business men of that locallity for fifteen years. He came from Letts to Greensburg to enter the Union Trust Company as secretary and treasurer. Much of the success of the company is due to his wide acquaintance and his thorough business efficiency.  
   Mr. Boyd is a Royal Arch and Council Mason, a member of the Knights of Pythias, a democrat in politics and a Baptist. He is married and has one daughter, Mrs. Jackson Butterfield of Cincinnati. Her husband is Captain Butterfield of the National Army.
