Abstract: To test a model of contagion -where individuals hear some bad news and communicate it to their acquaintances, who pass it on in turn, leading to a market panic- requires a knowledge of the information networks of market participants, something hitherto unavailable. For two panics in the 1850s this paper examines the bahaviour of Irish depositors in a New York bank.
