Edwin Bayeux Quackenbush - Lawyer, Insurance Sales

Edwin Bayeux Quackenbush, son of Edwin; born. May II, 1875: married. Sept. 25. 1900, to Flora Betty Wintner.

Children: Schuyler Bayeux, born. Dec. 31, 1901.

Edwin is a grandson of the late G. V. S. Quackenbush, who in 1824 founded the wholesale and retail dry goods establishment bearing his name, at Troy, N. Y., and who was one of the wealthiest and most successful businessmen of New York. He is a member of the New York State Bar, to which he was admitted after a careful training, first at the Albany Law College, and subsequently in the law office of his father, Edwin Quackenbush, an honored member of the Van Rensselaer and of the Saratoga County Bar Association. He served a term of four years as a magistrate in Saratoga County, being then twenty-two years of age and the youngest magistrate in the history of this state.

In 1898 he entered the service of the New York Casualty Company as general agent, and in 1901 was made superintendent of agents, being elected to the position of general manager of the company in May, 1902.

In 1903 he resigned as general manager of the New York Casualty to accept a position as superintendent of the Personal Accident Department of the Ocean Accident & Guarantee Corporation, Limited. He continued as superintendent of that department until 1905, at which time the "Ocean," being desirous of more actively developing the territory in the vicinity of its American head office, Mr. Quackenbush was selected to take personal charge of the Metropolitan Accident, Health and Burglary Departments of the corporation, including agency supervision in New Jersey, Connecticut and Rhode Island.

The success of Mr. Quackenbush is a logical one. The agents and brokers liked his energy, promptness, good nature and contracts. He provides them with exceptional facilities and assistance, makes sure that their customers' claims are paid promptly and protects them in the renewal of their business, believing that the Accumulation provision of an accident policy is for the purpose of holding the business, on renewal for the agent originally writing the line and not for the benefit of another agent, who at renewal time endeavors to "switch " it away from the agent originally placing same.
