Charles David formed the David Agency in 1917. He had been an off-line trade agent for the Union Pacific Railroad but was displaced when the Federal Government took over all of the railroads during World War I. Charles David took his knowledge of the shipping business and his contacts with various customers who shipped via the Union Pacific and began selling transit insurance through the "David Agency".
David Agency's original office was on the 11th floor of the Baker Building downtown Minneapolis. In 1955 the David Agency acquired land on Grant Street in downtown Minneapolis and constructed a building at 315 East Grant Street. The David Agency has had only five different locations in the 92 years they have been in business.
David Agency has grown steadily, passing through four generations of owners. The current owners are Thomas Devine, Dick Devine and David Psyhos.
