"That's what they called the area of steel cases where they kept the gold - the 'tank room'," Veach says. "And they left the steel cases behind, so we had them refinished at an auto-body shop and hung them behind the bar."
R. Crosby Kemper Jr., the longtime Kansas City banker who used his money and influence for various local causes, died in California on Thursday.
Kemper was 86.
Kemper led UMB Financial Corporation, historically regarded as one of the better-run banking institutions in the region.
But Kemper's local fame wasn't tied as much to running UMB as to what he did with the wealth that the bank afforded him. He once offered up $3 million to become an investor with New York attorney Miles Prentice's bid to buy the Kansas City Royals in the late 1990s. Kemper didn't care much for baseball, but thought keeping the Royals in town was a good idea.
