Part 3


Description BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION: Born in Fargo, North Dakota, in 1948, Lincoln Huseby attended the University of North Dakota and graduated before becoming an insurance agent in 1971. After working with American Family Insurance for many years, Huseby formed a partnership to form his own agency, H & H Insurance, in 1994. H & H Insurance is an independent agency, offering a variety of insurance types, from a number of insurance companies, to customers around the central Red River valley region. After the flood, H & H Insurance remained busy with a number of flood-related cases, and Huseby continued to make his home in Fargo. SUBJECTS DISCUSSED: Huseby discusses the impact of the winter of 1996-97 and the flood of 1997 on the insurance business. He describes the events of the flooding and the difficulties the flood raised for both insurance companies and insurance customers. Among the topics he takes up in his interview are the possible effects of the flood on insurance coverage in the Red River Valley, particularly federal flood insurance; the effect of the flood on businesses, especially business losses; and the possible impact of the flood and the flood's aftermath on future health coverage in the region. Huseby also discusses the impact of the flood on his own business.
