Meet the women who shaped New York Life. 

New York Life | April 21, 2021

From the nineteenth century to the twenty-first, women have played a pivotal role in the history of New York Life. From Winifred Supple, our first female employee, to Anna Rusche, our first female general manager. From Mary “Minnie” Tumbleson, our first female agent, to Mildred McAfee Horton, the first woman to join our board of directors.

They are just a few of the many remarkable women who have shaped our past  and our present. Watch our inspiring short film, The Women of New York Life, to discover their stories and find out more.
