I love the books from George Marshall’s personal library the Marshall in 30 Objects exhibit.
Of course I would; I’m a librarian.
Marshall was not always a big reader — it wasn’t until he attended the Staff College at Fort Leavenworth, Kan., in 1906 that then-Lt. Marshall realize the importance of reading to learning. He was an avid reader the rest of his life. Both of his homes — Dodona Manor in Virginia, and Liscombe Lodge in North Carolina — had libraries.
Gen. Marshall read widely, as evidenced by the titles in the exhibit.
A Ghost Town on the Yellowstone — humorous tale of life in 1900s Montana
Alone by Admiral Richard Byrd of his Antarctic experiences
How Prayer Helps Me, Old New Orleans, and my favorite — The Riddle of MacArthur!
