1929: On 30 January, the bank, owned by Bishop & Co., announced that it was merging with First National Bank of Hawaii, First American Savings Bank, Army National Bank of Schofield Barracks, and Baldwin Bank (Maui). The bank changed its name to Bishop First National Bank of Honolulu. (First National Bank of Hawaii and the First American Savings Bank were an outgrowth of the First American Bank of Hawaii.)
On November 3, 1933 the bank’s title was changed to the Bishop National Bank of Hawaii at Honolulu, and in the late 1960s, to First Hawaiian Bank. During the course of its charter as a U.S. national bank, the First National Bank of Hawaii at Honolulu (first title) issued 977,832 large size banknotes (1900–28), the Bishop First National Bank at Honolulu (second title) issued 696,672 small size banknotes (1929–33), and the Bishop National Bank at Honolulu (third title) issued 149,488 small size banknotes (1933–35).
