"Frank Stetson, trust officer, National Savings and Trust Company, Washington, D.C., belongs to that group of prominent Washington men who are natives of the National Capital and who have risen to success amid the home environments. Such men in this and in other cities are a practical refutation of the time-worn idea that success is only to be obtained far from the home fireside. Here Mr. Stetson was born, reared and educated, and here he has attained to positions of responsibility and trust, not only in Washington itself but in outside cities, through his directorships. One of the latter is with the Liquid Carbonic Company of Chicago, Illinois, and another is with the Davis Colliery Company, of Elkins, West Virginia. He is a college graduate and a member of the University Club of Washington, D.C. A resident of Chevy Chase, Maryland, he is affiliated with the two exclusive clubs of that Washington suburb, the Chevy Chase and the Columbia Country Clubs. Mr. Stetson was born on June 25, 1881, son of John Thomas and Frances Virginia (Scott) Stetson. He attended the local public schools of the District and was graduated from Old Central High in 1899. He then entered George Washington University Law School, where he had a thorough preparation in law, receiving his LL.B. degree in 1906 and his LL.M. the following year. On September 18, 1913, he was married to Etta Bertha Miller, the ceremony taking place in this city. Three sons have been born of this marriage - John Francis; Frank, Jr., and RichaRoad "
