Marshall was a 1901 graduate of VMI. He was commissioned an Army officer and became a 5- star general. He won the Nobel Peace Prize for devising the Marshall Plan... a massive undertaking to rebuild Western Europe after World War II.
In 1952, Harry Truman suggested to V-M-I that there needed to be a place to store Marshall's papers. It took more than 10 years for that idea to became a reality. The dignitaries toured the new library and took their places on the platform. Eisenhower spoke.
