Founded in 1931, Allstate is the nation’s largest publicly held personal lines insurer. It was founded by former Sears, Roebuck & Co President and Board Chairman, General Robert E. Wood, who initially sold policies through the mail, an innovative business move. The name Allstate was taken from a tire sold in the Sears catalog and the first sales location was in a Chicago Sears store. The first claim paid was to a man who showed up at the office holding a car door handle in his hand after an attempted car theft.
Allied Mutual Automobile Association was formed by Harold Evans in 1929. After years of operating as a standalone brand, Allied Insurance became Nationwide in 1998. Policies, documents, bills and account statements for Allied customers are now featuring the Nationwide name and logo.
