The Every Evening Insurance Policy

Above from the Wilmington News Journal Feb 22, 1928.

A. E. Hantwerker would work for the railroad for 50 years before retiring, he would be the Delmar Delaware Mayor in the 1950s and again in the 1970s. and he had an Every Evening Insurance policy.

The Every Evening Newspaper was a Wilmington Delaware newspaper.  It was connected with the News Journal and several other Wilmington newspapers.  From about 1925 to 1931 it  would feature an accident policy that if you were an Every Evening newspaper subscriber ($6 a year) and between 15 to 70 years old, you could buy $1000 insurance for about $1.50 a year.

The Every Evening Newspaper acted as an insurance agent for the Columbus Mutual Accident Insurance.  Columbus Mutual (Ohio) was founded in 1906 and has merged a number of times but is still in existence.  

Above 1927, the Wilmington Hodgson Mill Yarn Ladies hold up their copy of the Every Evening to show they are subscriber and have the insurance policy.
