The History of Prudential Life Insurance

Prudential has an extraordinarily long history and there is even a book about it, Three Cents a Week, which refers to the cost of the premiums at one point in their history.  Started in 1875, it was originally named the Widows and Orphans Friendly Society.  John F. Dryden was the founder and it originally sold only a single product, burial insurance.  Dryden continued to lead the company until 1912.  Just previous to this time the company began to make huge profits with industrial life insurance.  The company has remained pretty much the same throughout its history, adding new lines of insurance and investment options.  The only major change was shifting from a mutual insurance company (the customers own the company) to a joint stock company (owned by the stockholders).  The company first appeared on the New York Stock Exchange on December 13, 2001.
