1938 (Aug) Popular Mechanics

This nice two page pictorial spread about the work of figure maker Frank Marshall is in the August, 1938 issue of Popular Mechanics. One quote from the text: "For twenty years he has been carving blockheads and marionettes for the theatrical trade." Did he really start in 1918? Born in 1900, I guess he could have if he started as a teen working with the Macks. Frank died in 1969 which meant he has a 58 year career as figure maker. Pretty amazing!

  1. I think Frank Marshall did start figure making at age 18. You can confirm that information with Bob Isaacson but that sounds about right.
