  • District 13's own : Bro. GEORGE W. BOLDEN 
The insurance business has in SC claimed some of the brightest and most progressive young men of our state.  It is a line of work which calls for tact, energy and persistence. The #NorthCarolinaMutual #Insurancecompany trained and put in the field an army of agents unsurpassed in their line of work. 
One of these was brother George Westberry Bolden, who had largely developed his skills to a science. 
He is a native of the old Colonial town of #Camden, where he was born August 7, 1880.  Young Bolden attended the academy at Camden where he was prepared for college. He then matriculated at #ClaflinUniversity, where he graduated in 1902. Somewhat struggling, he knew he had to complete his education regardless.  This may be inferred from the fact that he started to school with only $10 and worked out the rest of his tuition and expenses about the place till the next vacation. Several vacations were spent in the brick yard at Camden. He simply refused to be discouraged, he had to make it shake!  He taught school for 5yrs at his home and for one year at #SterlingCollege, #Greenville. He spent a year in #Chicago, where he earned sufficient money to buy a home there,however, He felt a calling, and returned to S.C.. With teaching, he had taken up insurance work during vacations and he made for himself such a record that when he was ready to enter the field definitely he found a place awaiting him. In 1911 he located at Union, where his company then had a weekly debit of $17  and a single policy of $500. The average debit after his involvement ran considerably over $400 and he had on his books $189k in regular insurance. He had firmly established himself in the business and social life of his people.  At #Union he was recognized as a clearheaded, safe businessman by both the white and black people of his city. 
He was a member of the #AMEchurch  and  the #KoP.  Bro Bolden is hailed in the #GrandUnitedOrderofOddFellows and was #District13 building commissioner for many years. 
One of the most profitable and successful of his ventures was the organization and establishment of the #PiedmontDrugCompany and realestate!
