There is room and need for capable men
in all the allied activities of big business.
But nowhere is there greater need or greater
opportunity than in that very essential
service to all business - Insurance (Fire,
Marine and Casualty).
Insurance, as a profession, affords co
tact with the most vital activities of the
commercial and industrial world.
The Insurance Company of North
America, the oldest ,Ameican Fire and
Marine Insurance Company, has been an
integral part of big business since 1792 and
the-earliest beginning of national affairs.
