Fame and Fortune.

Fame and Fortune

A few familiar faces from Arkansas' troubled S&L past may soon appear in a Fortune magazine article regarding the rise and fall of thrift execs. Fortune's art director called Arkansas Business last week requesting photos of O. B. "Buddy" Chandler, Howard J. Wiechern, Jr. and John Latham but wouldn't say why.

You'll recall Chandler, formerly a senior loan officer at Savers, was convicted last year on five charges of bank fraud. The well-known Wiechern, formerly with FirstSouth, goes on trial Oct. 6 and has been charged with conspiracy and making false statements to the Federal Home Loan Bank Board.

Latham, a former officer of Madison Guaranty Savings and Loan, pleaded guilty earlier this year to making a false entry on the thrift's books.
