Encyclopedia article about Miles B. Lane, Jr., president of Atlanta-based Citizens and Southern National Bank (C&S) who pioneered innovative lending practices and earned national prominence for the bank, while financing much of the city's physical redevelopment. It was in Atlanta's political arena, however, that his impact was perhaps most keenly felt. Working behind the scenes as a political insider, Lane leveraged his influence to promote good government and progressive candidates, and helped to build an institutional framework capable of resolving municipal disputes. Lane attended Yale University and later married Anne Waring.
