Following is from a History of Aetna: "By 1888 (Aetna) had outgrown its old quarters on 670 Main Street and purchased new ones next door at 650 Main Street. The new building, the first Aetna actually owned, was picked up for a song from a failed insurance company. It would serve as Aetna's home office for the next 42 years."; "Aetna President Morgan G. Bulkeley was elected governor of Connecticut. Bulkeley, the son of the first Republican speaker in the Connecticut Legislature, was a career politician on the Republican side. He had already been the mayor of Hartford for several terms, and would eventually wind up his political career as a member of the storied "Millionaires' Senate" of 1906, so named for the wealth of its members.

"In 1896 Aetna's ownership system was called into question once again... by the new Connecticut Insurance Commissioner Frederick A. Betts. Betts...found a 20-year-old transfer of funds from the participating department to the stock department. Aetna asserted that the transfer was a legitimate compensation of shareholders for providing the capital to start the participating department. But Betts believed that Aetna improperly took money from policyholders to benefit stockholders and filed a civil suit against Aetna. Neither side profited from the endeavor. Betts ran out of funds before he could complete his case and had to accept an out-of-court settlement. For his trouble Betts was later falsely accused of accepting a bribe from Morgan Bulkeley to drop the suit. For its part, Aetna denied any wrongdoing, but had to replace the funds with interest and pay the state's legal costs." reprinted from History of Aetna

"On December 9, 1922, Gabriel Narutowicz, first President of Poland, ...was elected by the Polish parliament ...was sworn in on December 11. His election, by left, center, peasant and minorities deputies, roused the ire of the right, particularly the National Democrats, who emphasized that the MPs supporting Narutowicz had included Jews, and hence called the newly-elected head of state the "president of the Jews." On December 16, 1922, five days after his inauguration, while attending the opening of an art exhibition at Warsaw's ZachÄ™ta gallery, Narutowicz was shot to death by a National Democrat sympathizer, painter, art professor and critic, Eligiusz Niewiadomski...Narutowicz had from 1908 been a professor at the Zurich Polytechnic and had directed the construction of many hydroelectric plants in Western Europe..."

Aetna's "debacle of the Automobile Insurance Company was an event that left its scars on the young president...A casualty affiliate had contributed to the spectacular growth of Aetna during the early years of Brainard's tenure, with premium income almost tripling from $11 million in 1922 to $30 million in 1924. But improper management in the marine department, irresponsible risk selection and unchecked expansion undermined the financial soundness of the company. By 1926, it was clear that the organization was undercapitalized, and that bankruptcy was a real possibility"; Aetna confronted farm mortgage crisis by entering farm management business. "the post-war agricultural sector collapsed, and land values plummeted to, in some cases, a quarter of their wartime highs. Farmers could no longer meet their financial obligations, and Aetna was reluctantly forced to foreclose on an increasing number of mortgages...The company would fix up the properties, lease them to tenants, and wait until prices rose to a more acceptable level before selling. Unfortunately for Aetna, due to the extended economic downturn caused by the Depression, the company ended up managing these properties far longer than it had anticipated.
