Abstract in different language: This paper presents the biography of a prominent person from the Plzeň patriotic and revivalist Krofta family, JUDr. Richard Krofta. Richard Krofta held important positions in the First Republic financial sector and as president of the Union of Savings Banks, as well as a leading figure in the Plzeň Bank and City Savings Bank in Plzeň, he was instrumental in increasing the prosperity of the banking sector in the newly emerging Czechoslovak state. But he was far from being a mere banker and influential enterpreneur: on the contrary, his name featured in every significant patriotic, social or cultural activity in the region. Just like his father, he was used to putting the interests of his nation high above personal interests and did not spare the necessary efforts or even the sacrifices this entailed. This paper is based on sources from the family archives and personal reminiscences of contemporaries from the wider Krofta-Svátek family circle.
