1978 ink signature on a 5x3 card
Signature: "Malcolm Muggeridge/22-3-78", 5x3 card. English journalist, author and commentator Malcolm Muggeridge (1903-1990) was attracted to communism in his youth. Quickly disillusioned after traveling to the USSR in 1932, he smuggled out of the country reports of widespread famine, for which he would be posthumously honored 75 years later by the now independent Ukraine's Order of Freedom award. Muggeridge served in Britain's Secret Intelligence Service during World War II. Always provocative, Muggeridge was temporarily fired by the BBC in 1957 after publishing "Does England Really Need a Queen" during Queen Elizabeth II's visit to the US. Reputedly a drinker and womanizer in his youth, Muggeridge grew increasingly culturally conservative, attacking casual sex and drug use, and even the Beatles. He adopted Christianity and began writing extensively on religious themes. Pencil note (unknown hand) at top margin. Ink slightly smudged at "78". Otherwise, fine condition.
