Annals of the Scottish Widows Fund Life Assurance Society
During 100 years, compiled by the Hon. Sir Herbert Maxwell (1914)

To the Reader

IT can scarcely be expected of any purely business concern that its annals should furnish matter for exciting or amusing literature; but a brief chronicle of prosperous enterprise may not be devoid of interest to those who have experienced the vicissitudes of financial endeavour, and have realised in their own persons the strain of anxiety inseparable from the initial stages, as well as the glow of success after difficulties have been overcome. It is fitting, also, that the members of the Scottish Widows' Fund Life Assurance Society should be in possession of such information as will enable them to honour the memories of those men who, at a time when the principles of life assurance were but dimly understood, had the hardihood to launch a scheme of that nature, the foresight and sagacity to steer it through the perils of infancy, and to hand it on to succeeding generations endowed with the sound constitution which has caused it to attain to its present vigour and scope.
