He has appeared in the 65th, 67th, and 68th editions of Who’s Who in America.
Dr. Marshall studied with the University of Oregon, and holds a PhD in organic chemistry. He was a postdoctoral research associate of the University of California, San Francisco for two years before joining Quinnipiac University in 1973.

In his civic duty, he has also been an officer for Grange-Local Regional in Cheshire, Connecticut, and is a prolific contributor to scientific literature.
Dr. Marshall is a member of the American Chemical Society and Sigma Xi. In addition to his whimsical neckwear, he is also known for his fondness for ballroom dancing and off-roading in his Jeep. He is also the proud father of Marie Grace Nierenberg and Tina Marie with his wife, Lucretia Affie Marshall.
