Jack and Vause Carlsen, the editors for the 1954 Chief Justice yearbook, developed and introduced the idea of Marco, the university's mascot.
They were looking for a way to personalize the yearbook and had the idea of creating a character on the Thundering Herd. They named him Marco for Marshall College and he was their version of Marco Polo wandering through the yearbook and visiting different groups.
Marco appears 21 times in the 1954 yearbook and is illustrated by an artist in the publishing department. He is featured smoking a pipe while reading, singing hymns, playing football, swinging a fraternity paddle and sweating anxiously while knocking on a dean's door. Marco even has an advertisement on page 245.
