Description:

Joshua Bates (1828-1864) by an unidentified artist

Joshua Bates was a Bostonian who joined Barings as a partner in 1828. His personality complemented that of his gregarious partner, Thomas Baring. Bates was noted for his hard work and attention to detail. He was responsible for improving administration at the bank and it is largely thanks to him that so much material survives in The Baring Archive today.
