Blaine H. Wiseman was born on November 26, 1911 in Corydon,
Indiana. He was the son of Alva H. and Rose E. Wiseman. His
grandfather, W.H.P. (Shorty) Wiseman, was instrumental in
forming Old Capitol Bank in 1922. Blaine's father Alva was
active in promoting the farm community in addition to serving
as president of the bank before Blaine took the helm in 1946.
Both WHP and Alva introduced Blaine to community involvement
at an early age. They also taught him that hard work combined
with persistence and determination was the key to success.
