The following thesis is submitted to fulfill partially the requirements for the degree of Master of Business Administration from the University of New Mexico, Albuquerque, New Mexico. Entitled "Development of Automation of the First National Bank of Albuquerque", it relates the historical background and the development of the automation of demand-deposit accounting procedures at that New Mexico bank. In our ever-growing economy, banking has and will continue to play an increasingly vital role. The growth of its mechanisms and facilities is important and pertinent to each and every citizen. Automation is the latest, and perhaps one of the most striking steps in this evolutionary growth; for it comes not only as a climax to years of experimentation, but also as a beginning of a new phase in the history of banking progress. The preliminary work on automation accomplished by the American Bankers Association during the period 1954 through 1957 is presented in Chapter II as general back­ground for the thesis.
