Happy 150th Birthday A.P. Giannini!

By Museo Italo-Americano, San Francisco

A.P. Giannini, founder of Bank of America, was born on May 6, 1870 in San Jose. On May 6 2020, the San Francisco City Board of Supervisors adopted a resolution “recognizing A. P. Giannini on the occasion of his 150th birthday for his substantial contributions to San Francisco history, Italian American culture, and declaring May 6 as A. P. Giannini Day in the City and County of San Francisco.”

The resolution was sponsored by District 2 Supervisor Catherine Stefani and District 3 Supervisor Aaron Peskin, and it was adopted by a unanimous vote.

The Museo also thanks all the people who voiced their support for the resolution by phone and email during the May 5 Supervisors meeting.

Resolution recognizing A. P. Giannini on the occasion of his 150th birthday for his substantial contributions to San Francisco history, Italian American culture, and declaring May 6, 2020, as A. P. Giannini Day in the City and County of San Francisco.
