Equifax was founded by Cator and Guy Woolford in Atlanta, Georgia, as Retail Credit Company in 1899. The company grew rapidly and by 1920 had offices throughout the United States and Canada. By the 1960s, Retail Credit Company was one of the nation's largest credit agencies, holding files on millions of American and Canadian citizens. Even though the company continued to do credit reporting, most of their business was making reports to insurance companies when people applied for new insurance policies including life, auto, fire and medical insurance. All the major insurance companies used RCC to get information on health, habits, morals, use of vehicles and finances. They also investigated insurance claims and made employment reports when people were looking for new jobs. Most of the credit work was then being done by a subsidiary, Retailers Commercial Agency.
