Although the creation of the American College of Life Underwriters mentally may be said, with truth, to date from 1914, the actual incorporation of the College occurred in 1927 through action of the National Association of Life Underwriters. Although entirely independent of control by the National Association, as must necessarily be the case, the College is nevertheless the child of the National Association of Life Underwriters, having received its first real comfort and financial aid from that source, and having possessed continuously since birth the moral support and backing of that organization and local affiliates.
