I used data from FDIC (from FDIC site) Failures and Assistance Transactions from 1934 through 2012. I then found the coordinates and graphed them in R. The result is a by quarter movie of where and when a bank failed or assistance was needed from FDIC.
No real findings here. I couldn't really see anything extraordinary from locations. However, I do like when the 1980's come along and all the FSLIC banks (which is included in data) go under and the entire country blows up. Similar results happen late 2000's.
