New York Life first started doing business in Oregon Territory in 1851, eight years before Oregon became a state, making it the second oldest company perfoming business in Oregon. The first New York Life policy owner in Oregon Territory was Orville C. Pratt, a U.S. Territorial judge in Oregon City. He insured his life for $5,000 on January 9, 1851.
