    C. W. MITCHELL, superintendent of the Prudential Insurance Company of America, is a thoroughly experienced insurance man and occupies a position of great responsibility. He was born in 1864, at Columbus, Ohio, but was reared from the age of four years in Union City, Ohio.

    Mr. Mitchell was educated at Union City and was twenty-one years old when he left there for Hamilton, Ohio. In 1889 he first became identified with the Prudential people, and worked for them for two years at Hamilton, and then up to 1895 he was connected with other insurance companies, in that year returning to the Prudential. He was made assistant superintendent at Fremont, Ohio, where he remained two and one-half years, when he was transferred to Springfield and worked as assistant superintendent in that field for two years. His next transfer was to Mansfield, Ohio, where he was superintendent for fourteen months, going then to Dayton, as assistant superintendent. Mr. Mitchell came to Piqua as superintendent in 1905, where he has his main office, from which the affairs of the district are looked after. He has an office at Troy, with E. L. Jacobs in charge as assistant superintendent, and from that office the southern end of the county is watched. The company maintains a third office at Greenville, one at Sidney and one at St. Mary's, the territory covered being from Tippecanoe City on the south to Cridersville on the north. Mr. Mitchell's energy has had much to do with developing the business of this section for his company, and he is justly proud of his record.

    In 1892 Mr. Mitchell was married to Miss Clara B. Whitehead, of Hamilton, Ohio, and they have two children: Collin Ford and Myrtle Laurene. Mr. and Mrs. Mitchell are members of the Green Street Methodist Episcopal Church. He is identified with the Masonic fraternity.
