The Golden State Mutual insurance man I remember as a child was Mr. Williams (San Francisco) and yes I remember the little payment book. Matter of fact I still have a policy for my oldest daughter with GSM. http://www.gsmlife.com/
History: "Golden State Mutual Life Insurance Company, the largest black-owned insurance company in the west, was founded by William Nickerson, Jr., Norman Oliver Houston and George Allen Beavers, Jr. On July 23, 1925 they opened as the Golden State Guarantee Fund Insurance Company in a one-room office at 1435 Central Avenue, Los Angeles, with few amenities and $17,800 in capital."
