No. 1 John Malone

2,200,000 acres

What does America’s leading landowner have in common with Vice President Dick Cheney, Senator Alan Simpson, Philip Anschutz, and Sue Anschutz-Rodgers? All have been honored by the National Western Stock Show as Citizen of the West. That’s quite an achievement for a Connecticut Yankee who attended Yale and Johns Hopkins. But Malone and wife Leslie have perpetuated the agricultural ideals of the West on numerous occasions, including their 2014 donation of $42.5 million to Colorado State University to create the Institute for Biologic and Translational Therapies, which aims to develop stem cell and other treatments for animals. “Generous, philanthropic, and respectful, John embodies what makes a Citizen of the West,” says Ranch Marketing Associates’ Ron Morris.
