In insurance circles of Ashland and Richland counties few names are better known that that of Marvin W. Lutz. While he has been identified with the selling of insuranceas a regular business for only about five years, in the capacity of district manager for these two counties of the Union Central Life Insurance Company, from his headquarters at Mansfield he has just about doubled the insurance in force. Mr. Lutz was born in Stark County, Ohio, where he received a public school education. He was variously employed until the establishment of the rural free delivery system from the Canton Postoffice during the Spanish-American war, and at that time was made superintendent of carriers. After eleven and one-half years in the Canton Postoffice, Mr. Lutz entered the Isaac Harter & Sons Bank at Canton, where he remained four and one-half years. In 1907 he came to Mansfield as secretary of the Aultman & Taylor Manufacturing Company, a concern with which he remained in the same capacity for ten years, and then entered the insurance field, a line in which he had become greatly interested. He is now one of the most successful men in his line in this part of Ohio, and not only represents the Union Central Life Insurance Company, but the National Liberty Fire Insurance Company of America, with offices in the Dickson Building. During 1918, up to the signing of the armistice, Mr Lutz was in charge of the seven counties included in the Mansfield district of the Cleveland division, investigating and tabulating for the United States Government the capacity of manufacturing plants and their ability to supply whatever demand should be made upon them in their special lines. Mr. Lutz married Miss Magdalene King, of Buffalo, New York, and they have no children. Mr. and Mrs. Lutz are members of the Lutheran Church, and Mr. Lutz occupies a place on the official board.
