Marshall Foundation National Archives Project
This collection of approximately 1,000,000 pages of copied material was created by the Marshall Foundation to augment GCM’s personal papers. The Foundation wished to assemble as complete a record as possible from the official files of the various agencies in which Marshall worked. Most of this material comes from official files of the Army, War Department, State Department, and Defense Department, which are in the custody of the National Archives. Also included here are material published on microfilm by the National Archives and the National Historical Publications Commission (“F.D.R. Press Conferences”, “National War College Periodical Index”), published microfilm from others sources (e.g., The Stimson Diaries); periodicals on microfilm (Army and Navy Journal, Military Review, etc.); finding aids from other institutions; doctoral dissertations and other scholarly writings; portions of GCM’s personal papers and correspondence with or about GCM sent to biographer Forrest C. Pogue.
Note: Until 1985, this collection was referred to as the “Research File”.
