"As a first generation Latin American, it was different coming here, but I soon realized that I could just be me. St. Andrews is a school for people who like small classes and a close community."

DeTamble Library benefits from Marshall Family donation

Laurinburg, N.C. – Last fall, St. Andrews University's DeTamble Library expanded its collection by 220 titles thanks to a generous donation from the Marshall family.

St. Andrews accepted books on African American studies, Southern women during the Civil War, North Carolina history, U.S. history, antebellum photography and Queen Victoria titles from the collection of the late Patricia Phillips Marshall, a curator of decorative arts at the North Carolina Museum of History and curator of the North Carolina Executive Mansion.

"My late wife was in the career for 30 years and collected a lot of items," said Jackson Marshall. "When she passed from an unexpected heart attack we had a massive library of materials. I talked to the boys that it was more than we could handle or keep. We wanted to find a smaller North Carolina location to provide with these resources. With Dalton here as a student, having such a good experience, St. Andrews became our first choice."

Library Director Mary McDonald accepted the collection with open arms.

"We were thrilled to get these titles," said McDonald. "The collection greatly expands the opportunities for our students interested in history, southern studies and women's studies."

The family's connection will continue to expand this fall as the youngest Marshall, Stuart, joins his brother as a member of the St. Andrews University Pipe Band.

"I'm happy that we were able to make the offer and that St. Andrews agreed to take a part of the collection," said Jackson Marshall. "It was truly a family decision."
