From the Paper:

"Today's largest carrier of personal lines insurance originated over a friendly game of Bridge played in 1930 on a Chicago area commuter train. Sears president Robert Wood and a friend, insurance broker Carl Odell, joined forces after the insurance man suggested Sears sell auto insurance through the mail. Wood liked the idea, financed the company, and in 1931, put Odell in charge of the operation. The company, named Allstate, was named after one of the Sears' tire brands. Allstate got its beginning just as Sears was starting its push into retailing. As Sears grew, Allstate grew with it, selling insurance out of all of the new stores."
