The Midland Group began in 1954 when W.R. Johnston, an experienced Oklahoma banker, purchased a 50 percent share in Midland Mortgage Company, an Oklahoma City-based company that had been formed four years earlier by a handful of individual investors. By 1963, Johnston and his son-in-law, George Records, had purchased the remaining 50 percent. Today, the Records family owns 100 percent of the Midland Group.
In 1982, Midland Financial Co. purchased a newly formed charter bank in Stilwell, Oklahoma, named it MidFirst Bank and moved it to Oklahoma City. At the end of its first year, the bank had $1.7 million in assets and five employees.
