HISTORY

EARLY YEARS

Home office of the New England Mutual Life Insurance
Insurance
Co. one of the predecessor companies of MetLife. see

The predecessor company to MetLife
MetLife
began in 1863 when a group of New York City businessmen raised $100,000 to found the NATIONAL UNION LIFE AND LIMB INSURANCE COMPANY. The company insured Civil War sailors and soldiers against disabilities due to wartime wounds, accidents, and sickness. On March 24, 1868, it became known as Metropolitan Life Insurance
Insurance
Company and shifted its focus to the life insurance business. The Metropolitan Life Insurance
Insurance
Company tower , which previously served as company headquarters, was featured in its advertising for many years.

A severe business depression that began with the Panic of 1873 forced the company to contract, until it reached its lowest point in the late 1870s. After observing the insurance industry in Great Britain in 1879, MetLife
MetLife
President
President
Joseph F. Knapp brought “industrial” or “workingmen’s” insurance programs to the United States – insurance issued in small amounts on which premiums were collected weekly or monthly at the policyholder’s home. By 1880, sales had exceeded a quarter million of such policies, resulting in nearly $1 million in revenue from premiums. In 1909, MetLife
MetLife
had become the nation’s largest life insurer in the United States, as measured by life insurance in force (the total value of life insurance policies issued).

In 1907, the Metropolitan Life Insurance
Insurance
Company tower was commissioned to serve as MetLife’s 23rd Street headquarters in Lower Manhattan. Completed two years later, the building was the world's tallest until 1913 and remained the company's headquarters until 2005. For many years, an illustration of the building (with light emanating from the tip of its spire and the slogan, "The Light That Never Fails") featured prominently in MetLife’s advertising . By 1930, MetLife
MetLife
insured every fifth man, woman, and child in the United States and Canada
Canada
. During the 1930s, it also began to diversify its portfolio by reducing the percentage of individual mortgages in favor of public utility bonds, investments in government securities, and loans for commercial real estate. The company financed the construction of the Empire State Building in 1929 as well as provided capital to build Rockefeller Center in 1931. During World War II
World War II
, MetLife
MetLife
placed more than 51 percent of its total assets in war bonds, and was the largest single private contributor to the Allied cause.

POSTWAR

Company president Leroy Lincoln in 1947 Metropolitan Life logo, ca. 1970.

During the postwar era, the company expanded its suburban presence, decentralized operations, and refocused its career agency system to serve all market segments. It also began to market group insurance products to employers and institutions. By 1979, operations were segmented into four primary businesses: group insurance, personal insurance, pensions, and investments. In 1981, MetLife
MetLife
purchased what became known as the MetLife
MetLife
building for $400 million from a group that included Pan American World Airways . MetLife
MetLife
building at 200 Park Ave in New York City. The building is no longer owned by MetLife

De-mutualization And IPO

In 2000, MetLife
MetLife
converted from a mutual insurance company operated for the benefit of its policyholders to a for-profit public company. The de-mutualization process allowed MetLife
MetLife
to enter unrelated insurance businesses and increase executive compensation.

Policyholders received some stock in the new company in this process. MetLife

METLIFE AND THE “IDEAL WEIGHT”

In 1959, The Metropolitan Life Insurance
Insurance
Company (as it was known at the time) released tables of the best weight for each height for longevity, based on their collected insurance data. These tables showed the “desirable weights”. In 1983, they released tables showing the “ideal” weights for greatest longevity; this information was based on data collected in the Build Study of 1979 collected by the Society of Actuaries . This data followed patients for 18 years (from 1954-1972) and was collected from 25 life insurance companies in Canada
Canada
and the United States, representing 4.2 million people. These “ideal” weights were higher than the prior “desirable” weights, this was attributed to an increase in muscle mass due to improved fitness levels among the population. This study is still the largest available pool of data for this purpose. It was noticed that the average weights in the population are higher than the ideal weights for survival. The ‘’’Metropolitan Tables’’’ included ‘’small’’, ‘’medium’’ and ‘’large’’ frames, based on elbow-girth measured using calipers, as the elbows do not develop adipose tissue. They presented weight ranges for height, sex and body frame (again associated with the lowest mortality) The mid-point of the ideal weight for the medium frames for each height was selected as the “ideal” weight used for calculations of “excess weight” (initial weight-ideal weight). This led to a formula to calculate the ideal weight used by bariatric surgeons, but it had lost considerable accuracy by 2007, again due to improvements in medical care and in public health.
