John Harris was a banker out of Bangor, Maine who worked for the Collins family.
When she was a child, Carolyn Stoddard started a savings account at the bank with one dollar (44).
Harris had known Elizabeth Collins Stoddard for a long time, but they hadn't met at all from 1963 until 1967, when she called him to Collinsport to open up a trust fund for her nephew David (44).
A day earlier, investment banker James Blair had approached him about acquiring notes and mortgages related to the Collins assets. Harris was unaware that Blair represented Burke Devlin (42).
