This collection consists of two folders containing materials disparate in subject matter: one consisting of a list of many descendants of John Marshall compiled by Sam Clagg for Marshall University’s Sesqui-Centennial Committee in 1987, another of materials sent to Marshall University by one of these descendants. The folder compiled by Sam Clagg with a list of descendants includes an address for each one. Also included in the same folder are three letters regarding the acquisition of Marvin L. Marshall’s “The Marshall Family.” The other folder title “Marshall Family” two letters between Marshall’s Public Relations office and Mary Paulding Martin. Martin sent in a 1954 invitation to John Marshall’s Bicentennial Celebration at the College of William and Mary.
