Scope and Content

This notebook contains a list of fire insurance and life insurance companies doing business in Utah. In order to transact business, the agent was to file a statement showing company name, amount of capital, assets and liabilities, agent name, receipts and expenditures, etc. The statement had to be renewed annually. This list apparently represents companies so doing.

Each entry on the list gives the company name, name of agent(s) and the year or years of filing. Sometimes the filing date will be more precise. In one instance, the date of revocation of the certificate of authority is noted.
