Biography

Son of John Malcolm of Poltalloch (q.v.); inherited his father's collection of graphic work and sold it to the British Museum in 1895.
It was agreed by Malcolm family and sanctioned by the BM trustees in March 1931, that prints and drawings acquired by exchange or sale of duplicates from the Malcolm collection should be regarded as additions to the Malcolm collection itself. These were given 'Malcolm Addition' numbers beginning in November 1931 and entered in the register immediately after entries for the collection registered as 1895,0915.1 to 1448. Malcolm Addition numbers are entered on the database in Acquisition Notes.
