Born: c. 6/22/1891, Died: 11/26/1943

Son of William H. and Adelaide G. (Wagner) Marshall, Samuel W. Marshall received his B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Pennsylvania in 1915, became a cadet engineer for the United Gas Improvement Co., and also worked for the Philadelphia Point Breeze Gas Works. Around 1920 he was employed by architects Ballinger & Perrot. By 1922, however, he had established the office of Marshall & Fox, an architectural firm in Philadelphia. He was also associated with Marshall & Pennell, according to Who's Who in Philadelphia (c.1927) Subsequent projects are reported in the Philadelphia Real Estate Record and Builders' Guide for Marshall alone, Marshall & Fox, or Marshall & Tyler (with Gerald Tyler).

PLEASE NOTE: Seemingly conflicting information is provided by the University of Pennsylvania's General Alumni Catalogue (1917) and the 1927 Who's Who in Philadelphia.
