Today’s Kathryn and Shelby Cullom Davis Library at St. John’s University’s School of Risk Management comprises the world’s largest collection of risk and insurance literature, policies, and related documents, and serves students of risk management, insurance, and actuarial science around the world as a center for study and research.  The Library’s beginnings date back to 1901, when insurance executives founded The Insurance Society of New York, and began providing study space and material to young people entering the insurance industry.

Since its earliest days, the Library has served as a site for insurance lectures.  Over the years, The Insurance Society of New York developed a curriculum based upon these lectures.  This ultimately led to the creation of The School of Insurance, followed by The College of Insurance, the predecessor to St. John’s School of Risk Management.

A number of individuals and organizations contributed to the Library’s growing collection throughout the 1900’s.  Throughout its history, the Library has served students, faculty, staff, and sponsors, as well as members of The Insurance Society of New York.  In 1974, Shelby Cullom Davis and his wife Kathryn secured the Library’s future with a major endowment, and the Library was renamed in their honor.

With the merger of The College of Insurance and St. John’s University in 2001, the Davis Library became part of the St. John’s University library system. Today, the Davis Library remains one of the most comprehensive risk, insurance, and actuarial science collections in the world, serving students, faculty, scholars and industry practitioners seeking specialized knowledge in these areas.  It is a place for study and learning, research and insight.

By collecting, organizing, preserving and making available published and unpublished resources about risk, insurance and actuarial studies, the Kathryn and Shelby Cullom Davis Library strives to advance the understanding of the insurance industry’s history, analysis, management and business culture. The Library’s goal is to provide these resources to create a unique perspective of  the impact the insurance industry has had and will continue to have on the economic, political and cultural development of the United States and the world.
As an ACADEMIC SPECIALTY library and repository, the Davis Library supports the academic needs of faculty and students in the St. John’s University School of Risk Management , Insurance, and Actuarial  Science.
As a PRIVATE SPECIALTY library and repository, the Davis Library supports the information and knowledge acquisition needs of the risk, insurance and actuarial enterprise and its practitioners.
As a SCHOLARLY, PRIVATE SPECIALTY library and repository, the Davis Library supports the research needs of the national and international scholarly community.
The Kathryn and Shelby Cullom Davis Library carries out its mission and vision by fulfilling its role as a key facilitator of information access for research, user-centered learning and information literacy in the areas of risk, hazards, insurance and actuarial science.

The Kathryn and Shelby Cullom Davis Library exists primarily to support the curriculum of St. John's University. Secondarily, the collection is a historical record of the insurance industry. A number of considerations shape our collection policy.

Since several libraries covering the life insurance industry in-depth exist elsewhere, the focus of this collection will continue to be the property/casualty market. We recognize, however, that a core life/health insurance collection will be required.  While avoiding constant jumping from one "hot topic" to another, the environment, weather (global warming and natural catastrophes)and the implications of economics on the world's health care policies--on both national and market levels--are strengths within the collection that will continue to be maintained

The library is supported in part by its annual subscription members in the insurance industry. Members have an inportant voice in conjuction with St. John's with input into the depth and breadth of the material collected and in deciding the lengths to which the staff will go to secure information located elsewhere.

Based on consultation with faculty, members, staff, and students, the library solicits and encourages active participation in the selection process. This is accomplished through regular meetings with interested faculty members and annual reviews of serial titles (including newspapers, journals, newsletters and loose-leaf services) prior to subscription renewals. Recommendations as to electronic databases to which our members seek access are welcome and encouraged.

The library seeks materials in a variety of media: print, audio, video and electronic. Primary consideration is given to insurance-related materials. Recognizing the importance of collecting economic statistics and general business and financial management texts that will aid in the analysis of the insurance industry and companies, worldwide, secondary consideration is given to materials covering these areas.

All reference materials (general, business and insurance industry-specific) receive the highest priority. Preference for newspaper, journal and newsletter subscriptions is given to those titles indexed and/or abstracted but not available in full-text on any of the electronic resources subscribed to the library, CD-Rom or online.

Given our large international student population, the library seeks works that explain the American government, politics and the democratic principles upon which this nation was founded, as well as the social structure and fabric of the country. Since attendees of the Center for International Insurance Studies are often first-time visitors to the States with limited time for sightseeing, we continue to purchase maps and tour guides of the region, pointing out landmarks, unusual architecture and other points of interest.

As one of the largest insurance libraries in the world, we recognize the importance of both collecting current materials and maintaining a historical record of the industry over time through established preservation techniques. The library actively seeks materials of historical interest and value in the area of insurance and encourages donations to its collection that will both broaden the scope of the collection and deepen the knowledge base of existing resources.

As a partial U.S. Government Depository, the library receives a wide ranging selection of government documents, primarily relating to insurance regulation and legislation (laws); insurance programs administered by the government, including flood and crop insurance, social security, unemployment, Medicare and Medicaid; vital health statistics (e.g., mortality and natality); statistics on accidents, catastrophes and safety; and a variety of materials on the general business climate. To assure a comprehensive yet focused collection of materials, an annual review of documents available through the depository program is conducted. An additional consideration in making our selection is the availability of each item within the region should we choose not to select it as a depository item.

In order to provide our constituency with the widest possible range of information related to the insurance industry and its supporting disciplines, the library is committed to working with other institutions in the industry, and academic and special libraries both within the US and abroad. Access to the rich and diverse library resources of the City allows us to concentrate our efforts on the insurance industry.

Our staff participates in international insurance information activities through active memberships in many different professional asssociations including The American Library Association (ALA), the International Federation for Information and Documentation's Banking, Finance and Insurance Special Interest Group and two divisions of the Special Libraries Association: Insurance & Employee Benefits Division and Business & Finance Division. Staff is encouraged to build relationships within library and information associations, write articles for newsletters and journals, and present papers at conferences.

This policy is reviewed at the close of each academic year and revised where appropriate in preparation for the beginning of the fall term.

The 100,000+ volumes of the Kathryn and Shelby Cullom Davis Library comprise an extraordinary collection of American and international insurance materials.

The library maintains sets of:

Forms, policies and contracts
Directories of insurance companies and associations, worldwide
Insurance Department reports to state legislatures and selected insurance commissioner annual reviews from around the world
Loose-leaf services for insurance law research (reporters, treatises, litigation reports, case and jury verdicts)
Insurance periodicals in continuous runs, some dating back to the mid-1800's
Insurance laws and regulations from the 50 states and around the world

The Davis Library has historical as well as contemporary collections, with the oldest volume dating back to 1569 (A Treatise on Insurance, by Benvenuto Straccha, published in Venice Call# M010 S) and an extensive collection of insurance policies and documents tracing the development of insurance terminology and contracts since 1665.

Highlights of the Davis Library’s Special collections include:

Notable documents such as a life insurance policy for an American slave, and a record of funded annuities for 1775 that includes Marie Antoinette, “the present Queen of France.”

In the Marine Insurance area, the Winter Collection of Marine Insurance is a world leader in terms of the scope and depth of the collected works.  It also serves as a memorial to the late president and chairman of the Atlantic Mutual Insurance Company, William David Winter. The Association of Average Adjusters’ collection of American and British maritime law is also housed in the Davis Library.

The Heber B. Churchill Earthquake Collection, donated in 1950, provides detailed accounts of major catastrophes from the beginning of the 20th century, among them the Tokyo Earthquake of 1923; the San Francisco earthquake and fire of 1906; typhoons in Japan from 1920 - 1940; and hurricanes in the North Atlantic, New England and the Caribbean.  Since the 1950’s, the Library staff has purchased and catalogued all earthquake material coming to its attention, making the Davis Library’s collection on natural disasters a leader worldwide today.

Additional Specialized Collections
Various insurance organizations have entrusted their collections to the Davis Library.  For example, The Society of Actuaries and the Casualty Actuarial Society have selected the Davis Library as custodian for their collections.

The Davis Library contains the archives of The Insurance Society of New York, The College of Insurance, The American Academy of Insurance Medicine, and other important groups such as the Insurance Company Education Directors Society (ICEDS) and the newsletters and scrapbooks of the Insurance Women of New York.

Exposurer and Information Newsletter. 2012 - present

The Kathryn and Shelby Cullom Davis Library of St. John's University welcomes gifts and donations that support the academic needs of our students and faculty, as well as the interests and concerns of our members and sponsors. Gifts of books and other materials expand and enhance our collections; monetary donations allow us to improve our services. Donors may wish to designate their grants to support a specific collection or activity or target an area where there is a perceived need.

Areas of Potential Support:
The Library requires funds to strengthen existing collections and purchase materials. These funds enable us to purchase expensive reference books, market research studies, journals, newsletters, online databases, CD ROMS and other e-resouces.

* In order to provide the most effective information service, the Library requires equipment to automate, thereby increasing access to the collection. Access to Web based information and other digital resources requires periodic upgrading of hardware and software, which is becoming increasingly expensive and important.

* Our phyical collection consists of books; periodicals; forms, policies and contracts; laws and regulations; pamphlets; government documents and other materials related to the insurance industry and its role in global commerce. Many of these documents are currently available only at this library, and a large percentage of this material is in extremely fragile condition.

* Our Insurance Information Preservation Project is a concerted effort to preserve these documents before a unique and valuable history of insurance is lost forever.

Contact Us:

Should you know of alumni, individuals, companies or foundations that might be willing to support some of our special insurance information projects, particularly as they relate to automating our catalog, providing access to our collection via the Web and digitization of materials in our extensive historical collection of vertical files, we would appreciate hearing about it from you. For this and all other questions concerning financial gifts or donations to the Library, please contact the library, at 212-277-5137 and speak with the Director, Ismael Rivera or send a general e-mail to [email protected]. The Davis Library is grateful for your continued support.


In 1965, the Library was designated as a selective Federal Depository. As such, it receives core (basic) publications automatically, and selects additional items that enhance its insurance collection. It compiles insurance department reports, insurance laws and regulations of the 50 states, and statistical reports.

Not all umbrella policies are the same - they differ in coverage, definitions, scope and features. Although Insurance Services Office (ISO) and American Association of Insurance Services (AAIS) have developed umbrella policies, most insurers file and use their own forms. Therefore, it is important to have a basic knowledge of umbrella features and benefits so that insurance professionals can best advise and protect their clients. This CD ROM will help you understand this important tool in the personal lines arsenal
