    During the Depression of the 1930s, President Roosevelt closed all banks in the nation for several days. During that time, Congress passed an Emergency Banking Act that would allow only banks with an adequate financial structure to reopen. The State Bank of Colwich was one of only three in western Sedgwick County to do so. This success was due to the leadership of Clemens Suellentrop.
