The Forum was known for its symposium-style format, where prominent guest authors debated all sides of contemporary political or social issues. Topics of interest such as science and industry, education in its many guises, religious debate, literary movements and fine arts movements were all tackled at length during these forums.
The inaugural issue of The Forum magazine was issued in 1885 and ran under various names and formats until it finally closed its doors in 1950. Four future presidents contributed articles including Woodrow Wilson and Theodore Roosevelt; its scholarly content proved immensely popular with readers.

HENRYs are often insecure about their net worth despite working hard. With a tendency to spend more than they earn and compare themselves against those less educated than themselves making more money, this type of person often feels inadequate about his or her finances. Therefore, these individuals attempt to minimize high interest debt, purchase homes with low mortgage interest rates, and maximize retirement accounts to protect themselves financially.
Goodman describes Schwab as having an enormous ego who expects to be treated as an international figure when traveling, expecting his visit will be treated like that of a head of state. Schwab is often accused of “snobbery and arrogance.” Goodman provided one example in which Schwab threatened a Forum employee who accidentally drove into Schwab’s parking spot with termination unless senior staff intervened immediately – at which point senior staff quickly made sure she remained employed by saving her from termination.
