This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Atchison, Kansas Aug. 31, 1905 and died in Topeka, Nov. 14, 1992, Charles L. Marshall was a painter of Kansas scenes, printmaker and architect. 

He studied architecture, earning a degree at Kansas State Agricultural College, in Manhattan in 1927. After working in Washington, D.C., for the War Department, Marshall returned to Kansas and was Assistant State Architect until being named State Architect in 1945, a position he held until 1952. It was during his tenure, that John Steuart Curry was hired to paint the murals in the state capitol.

After leaving the post as State Architect, Marshall was in private architectural practice in Topeka. Throughout his life, Marshall also painted and sketched avidly. He often depicted Kansas landscapes, documenting many small towns, grain elevators and train stations across the state. He kept sketchbooks of various subjects, including everyday scenes, family life, flowers, and animals.

Marshall served as head of the Topeka Art Guild, and president of the Kansas State Federation of Art. Many of his papers are available at the Kansas State University library.
