Mosaic tile signifies Marshall’s contributions to UWSP
Portage County Gazette

By Jim Schuh

It was sad to learn that former University of Wisconsin Stevens Point (UWSP) Chancellor Phillip Marshall died recently. Marshall, who spent a decade leading the university, was a dignified man who operated quietly – pretty much how you might expect a scientist to act – he was a chemist. His leadership spanned most of the 1980s.
Retired Dean Justus Paul has chronicled Marshall’s time at UWSP, and Gene Kemmeter wrote a fitting obituary for him in the Gazette a few weeks ago. Both noted that Marshall was tireless in working to improve faculty salaries at UWSP, and that was among his legacies on campus – along with efforts to improve student writing and move UWSP into the computer age. Marshall and his wife, Helen, also were Pointer sports boosters.
