RALEIGH, N.C. -

North Carolina's banking industry trade association is on a hunt for missing history.
    
The group is updating an old poster from the 1950s and searching for the portraits of four former governors to complete the look at chief executives dating back to 1776.
    
The collection has been done before, but not since Gov. Luther Hodges was the state's chief executive more than half a century ago.
    
North Carolina Bankers Association President Thad Woodard said a new collection of photographs and painted portraiture will be printed at the group's expense. Woodard says his goal is to have more than 4,000 copies distributed to schools beginning next fall.
