Travelers background:

Travelers has been formed from two separate companies -- St. Paul Fire and Marine Insurance Co. in 1853 and Travelers Insurance Co. in 1864.

The St. Paul Fire and Marine Insurance Co. was founded in St. Paul, Minn., by Alexander Wilkin to protect the public from fire.

Travelers was founded in Hartford, Conn., by J.G. Batterson to insure people who were traveling by train or steamboat at a time when such travel was risky. Hence its name. In 1866, Travelers expanded to include all types of accidents, not just those that occurred when traveling.

The two companies grew and expanded. They merged into one in 2004. Its original name was the St. Paul Travelers Companies. Three years later, it changed its name to The Travelers Companies.

Today Travelers has large offices in Hartford, Conn., New York City and St. Paul, Minn.

Travelers Insurance is a publicly held company and listed on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol TRV.
