Founder, Orison Swett Marden established the nationally recognized Success Magazine in 1897.


Being in the hotel industry, Marden had acquired several hotels, one of which was the upscale hotel, Palmer House, in Grand Island, Nebraska; which was eventually torn down in 1979. Another he had acquired was in the neighboring city of Kearney. It was this hotel, in 1893, that burned to the ground destroying all of Marden's personal possessions, including over 5,000 pages of manuscripts for unpublished motivational works.


These two documents escaped the fire because they had been in his close friend and business partners possession, Dr. O. D. Cheney. 


Signed several times by Marden, February, 28, 1893, a legal document for the purchase of the upscale hotel, Palmer House, in Grand Island, Nebraska.


A hand written letter by Marden to Dr. O. D. Cheney, dated 1885.
