Pascal H. Ware (1881 – )

Pascal H. Ware, owner of the Ware Agency, conducting
a successful and growing insurance business in Minneapolis,
was born in Pipestone county, Minnesota, May 19, 1881, 
and is a son of Milton W. and Emma L. (McCarter) Ware, who 
were natives of Wisconsin and of Minnesota, respectively.
The father was for many years a well known merchant of 
Pipestone, but is now residing in Spokane, Washington.
The son, Pascal H. Ware, was educated in the public 
schools of Pipestone and in the University of Minnesota,
and after leaving college in 1900 he turned his attention
to the insurance business in Minneapolis, becoming connected
with the firm of P. D. McMillan & Company on the east side.
Later he was associated with the Retail Lumber­men's Insurance
Association, doing special work on the road for a period of
two years. In 1905 he went to Omaha, Nebraska, where he was
identified with the Columbia Fire Insurance Company for a 
few years, but in 1909 he returned to Minneapolis and bought
out the interest of P. D. McMillan, his former employer, in
the firm of P. D. McMillan & Company. He thus became a partner
of W. B. Boardman and the business was carried on under the 
firm style of Boardman & Ware until 1919, when Mr. Ware became
a member of the Hood Agency, as its vice president. This business
was so conducted until November, 1921, when the agency was 
reorganized in part under the name of the Ware Agency, and Mr.
Ware has continued alone. He represents a number of the 
leading fire insurance companies of the country and does a
large general insurance business throughout the United States,
being a special representative of the underwriters at Lloyds
of London, England. He is familiar with every phase of insurance
in its broadest scope and his long experience has enabled him
to develop an agency of large proportions, while the number of
his clients is steadily increasing. His high standing in 
insurance circles is indicated in the fact that he was at
one time chosen to the presidency of the Minneapolis Underwriters'
On the 8th of January, 1905, Mr. Ware was married to Miss Calla
Blanchard of Duluth, Minnesota, and they have one child, 
Edwin Blanchard. Mr. Ware belongs to the Delta Upsilon, a college
fraternity, and is also identified with the Masons, loyally 
following the teachings and principles of the craft. In club circles,
too, he has wide connection and is prominently known, belonging 
to the Minneapolis Athletic Club, the Old Colony Club, the 
Minneapolis Golf Club and the St. Anthony Commercial Club."
