YOUR NAMI HERI

year, qualifying for membership in the industry-wide 1958 Million Dollar Round Table ... A
tribute not only to him, but to this school's overwhelming acceptance of New York Life's modern
The honor of being one of New York Life's leading agents for 1957 is one George Coxhead
worked hard to earn and richly deserves. We extend not only heartiest congratulations to him,
but sincere thanks to the many, many Carolina students whose acceptance of New York Life in
surance protection made his record possible.
Since joining New York Life in 1955, George Coxhead has achieved an enviable reputation as
one of his Company's foremost representatives. He is carrying on the tradition as a leader set
while an undergraduate at Carolina. As a student he was a member of Golden Fleece, Order
of the Grail, Phi Beta Kappa, and Co-Captain of the Swimming Team.
We believe that George Coxhead's outstanding record of service to the students at Carolina is
typical of the quality of service rendered by New York Life agents everywhere. That, is why,
throughout the U. S. and Canada, we so confidently say, "The New York Life Agent on Your
Campus is a Good Man to Know." - 1
