Biographical history

The British Columbia Fruit Growers Association Hail Insurance Committee was established in 1942, and again in 1949 to study the question of setting up a grower-owned hail insurance company. It later evolved into the British Columbia Fruit Growers Mutual Hail Insurance Company. The Mutual Hail Insurance Company was incorporated in 1950 to sell hail insurance to Association members. In later years it was managed under contract by the Fruit Growers Mutual Insurance Company. The hail insurance company was voluntarily liquidated in 1970.

Custodial history

The records of the Hail Insurance Committee were initially part of the British Columbia Fruit Growers Association's fonds. When the British Columbia Fruit Growers Association Mutual Hail Insurance Company was created, they inherited the records of the Hail Insurance Committee. When the company was liquidated in 1970, the the Fruit Growers Mutual Insurance Company retained custody of the records. When the Fruit Growers Mutual Insurance Company was purchased in 1974 by the Insurance Corporation of British Columbia, the records were incorporated into the ICBC fonds as a series.

Scope and content

The fonds consists of the records of the British Columbia Fruit Growers Association, Hail Insurance Committee and its successor, British Columbia Fruit Growers Mutual Hail Insurance Company. The records of the Hail Insurance Committee include minutes of committee meetings, 1949-1950. The records of the Mutual Hail Insurance Company primarily consist of minutes of the Board of Directors meetings and annual general meetings; correspondence, filed with the minutes; the First Annual Report (1950); the 1951 corporate by-laws, as amended in 1953; and a few pamphlets on the topics of crop and hail insurance.
