Law Insurance Agency, Inc.
Spartanburg, South Carolina 29304
In 1892 Mr. Andrew M. Law, a millionaire philanthropist, began the A.M. Law Company consisting of a Stock Brokerage unit and an Insurance unit. At the turn of the century, A.M. Law & Company was one of three retail Insurance offices in Spartanburg County. In 1903 as the Insurance sales continued to increase, Mr. Law went to visit the faculty of Wofford College in Spartanburg. He asked them which student had a very distinct, attractive handwriting which was needed to fill in the blanks of the Insurance Policies produced by the A.M. Law & Company. They all agreed that Simpson F. Cannon, Sr. was that student. So, in 1903 he started working for Mr. Law and remained with him until Mr. Law passed away in the mid 1950's.
Shortly after Mr. Law's death, the employees who managed the Stock Brokerage office and Simpson Cannon, Sr. met to discuss the future plans of the company. The consensus was that Simpson Cannon manage the Insurance office which would require a move from the current premises. Simpson Cannon remained the owner of what became Law Insurance Agency until his death in 1972. John R. (Jack) Cannon, the 10th of 10 children, started to work with Law Insurance Agency in 1950. He became the owner in 1972. Stephen B. Cannon, Jack's Son, started working at Law Insurance Agency in 1984 and became the President/CEO of Law Insurance Agency, Inc. in 1996 when Jack passed away. As of 2018, Steve is still the President and CEO.
