George C. Marshall Research Library, Lexington, Virginia

[LIB7825] Lexington, Virginia's new Marshall Library houses a fascinating museum dealing with World War II and the life of war-time chief of staff and the author of the European recover plan.

The building, which faces the VMI parade ground, will become a leading center for 20th century military and diplomatic history. [from the back of the card]

THE MISSION OF THE George C. Marshall Research Library is to collect, preserve, and make available to scholars a documented record of the life and public service career of George Catlett Marshall. That mission includes a variety of military and diplomatic history issues between the years 1900 and 1960. Many of Marshall's contemporaries have donated their documents in support of the library's mission. [Website]
