An outgoing personality and unlimited talent have contributed to the success of John Marshall, formerly of the Crawfordsville area, according to his friends and close associates. Marshall is now located at Glendale, Calif where he appears in commercial television films, children's shows and dramas. He also writes songs and poems which he plans to perform in concert. Many of his writings are excerpts from his Hoosier background. While attending Crawfordsville HS, Marshall's talent was evident in those who observed his dramatic and witty performance. He was encouraged by many community citizens to consider dramatics as a career. "I was elated about Marshall's outstanding ability to entertain and hold the attention of his audience. His talent appeared so natural that I encouraged him to attend Northwestern University to continue developing his ability." W. Addington Vance, publisher of The Journal-Review said. Marshall attended Arlington HS and was graduated from CHS in 1950. He then attended Northwestern University. He served two years in the Marine Corps before becoming a professional television personality. He held a permanent Lt. Commision in the US Marine Corps. Marshall was a TV performer on the Lafayette WFLI-TV station before moving to Palm Beach, FL. He appeared on WPTV and WATV for approximately four years in Florida.

He is a lecturer and guest speaker and an active member of the church in Glendale. Marshall is married and the father of four children. His mother is Mrs. Charles A. Marshall of Darlington - kbz
