By on March 25, 2014 at 9:14 AM

Each month, we share an image from GEICO’s past and invite you to exercise your caption-writing skills. This mid-1970s photo shows how GEICO stored policy records and other company information as it moved into the computer age. These IBM 3420 tape drives held about 120 megabytes of data. But converting from paper files to this […]

By on February 27, 2014 at 12:10 PM

Each month, we share an image from GEICO’s past and invite you to exercise your caption-writing skills. When Leo Goodwin launched GEICO in 1936, his fledgling company was built on a foundation of direct mail. The operation required lots of printing, so to keep costs as low as possible, GEICO had its own printing facilities […]

Memory of the Month: Safe and secure

By on January 27, 2014 at 2:21 PM

Each month, we share an image from GEICO’s past and invite you to exercise your caption-writing skills. This one really speaks to me. You see, in a former life, during my two-year “sabbatical” from college during my freshman year, one of the jobs I had was as a security guard. I WAS this guy for […]

By on December 12, 2013 at 3:07 PM

Each month, we share an image from GEICO’s past and invite you to exercise your caption-writing skills. I’m not sure when this photo was taken, but it was on a day much like this one. I’m writing this post on a snowy, icy morning when many D.C.-area businesses closed or delayed opening, but not GEICO. […]

Memory of the Month: Giving thanks

By on November 27, 2013 at 3:31 PM

Kids, you won’t believe this, but once upon a time, televisions did not have flat screens, and if you wanted to change the channel, you had to get up and walk to the TV to do it. The only time the words “high definition” went together was when you were looking up the word “high” […]

Memory of the Month: Building a better GEICO

By on October 30, 2013 at 11:17 AM

Each month, we share an image from GEICO’s past and invite you to exercise your caption-writing skills. I work at GEICO’s corporate headquarters, just on the Maryland side of the northwest boundary of Washington, D.C. This building opened in 1959, but because the company was growing so rapidly, we needed additional space quickly, and the […]

Memory of the Month: the man in the middle

By on September 27, 2013 at 4:08 PM

Each month, we share an image from GEICO’s past and invite you to exercise your caption-writing skills. Earlier this month, as we do every year, we celebrated GEICO’s birthday. It has been 77 years since the company’s founder, Leo Goodwin, pulled up stakes in Fort Worth, Texas, and moved the brand-new Government Employees Insurance Company […]

Memory of the Month: Develop yourself, dog-gone it!

By on August 27, 2013 at 2:08 PM

Each month, we share an image from GEICO’s past and invite you to exercise your caption-writing skills. Like any other company, GEICO strives to hire the best and the brightest. But it’s nearly impossible to find entry-level employees who already know all about insurance – after all, who grows up dreaming of one day having […]

Memory of the Month: What’s the story, Maury?

By on July 30, 2013 at 4:26 PM

Each month, we share an image from GEICO’s past and invite you to exercise your caption-writing skills. Here’s one that’ll challenge you caption-writers out there. Having labored in associate communications here for many moons, I can almost guarantee that this scene was part of some sort of video being shot for consumption by GEICO employees. […]
