Malcolm Forbes (1919 - 1990) was the President of Forbes magazine, founded by his father, which he transformed into one of the most prosperous American financial magazines.

After being wounded in Germany during World War II, Malcolm joined the family business in 1946 as assistant editor. He assumed increasing responsibilities until 1964, when his father and brother, now deceased, left him as sole owner of the company that he revolutionized with bold initiatives.

Malcolm Forbes was also known for having the largest collection of autographs and manuscripts related to American presidents, more than 4,000 documents, such as the manuscript of Abraham Lincoln's last speech and a 1939 letter from Albert Einstein, addressed to President Franklin D. Roosevelt, which led to the atomic bomb project. Malcolm Forbes once said:

None of my other investments give me more joy than autographs because they make me feel like I hold a piece of history in my hands.

This document is doubly interesting because it was written by the young Malcolm Forbes the year he joined the family business and because it features the Forbes masthead in New York.
