Biography of Neel M. McCullough

Neel M. McCullough. As cashier of the Citizens Bank of Anderson, as a member of the firm of Vinnedge-McCullough Real Estate Agency and as president of the Pierce Speed Controller Company, Neel M.

Neel M. McCullough was born in the city of Anderson, March 19, 1886, the only son of the late Carroll K. and Hattie B. (Black) McCullough.

In the fall of the same year he entered the University of Michigan, but left that institution after one year to enter the banking business. Entering the Citizens Bank in 1905, he went through the entire routine of banking, and in 1911 was promoted to the office of cashier, his present position. He is the secretary and treasurer of the Anderson Club, the city’s leading social organization.

In 1907 occurred the marriage of Mr. McCullough to Miss Charlotte Gedge, a daughter of Burton H. Gedge, one of Anderson’s well known business men.
