The George C. Marshall Foundation, Lexington, Virginia announces the release of volume seven of The Papers of George Catlett Marshall, which concludes this project.

The seventh volume, “The Man of the Age,” dated Oct. 1, 1949 to Marshall’s death on Oct. 16, 1959, covers the final years of Marshall’s life when he served as secretary of defense from September 1950 to September 1951 following a year as American Red Cross president and other periods when the so-called retired Marshall was still very active publicly.

As with the first six volumes, the current volume is published by Johns Hopkins University Press.  Volume 7 and the other volumes can be purchased in the Marshall Museum Shop or online at
