Biography
  • Thomas Claude Marshall (1896-1976), ichthyologist and museum preparator, was born on 2 January 1896 at Red Hill, Brisbane, son of Joseph Walter Marshall and Rosalie, nee Briggs. He was educated at Petrie Terrace State School. Tom joined the Queensland Museum on 10 January 1912 and trained as a cadet-preparator and became a protégé of the ichthyologist J. D. Ogilby. During 1915-17 Marshall served full time in the Militia, working at the 13th Australian General Hospital, Enoggera. Returning to the museum, he was promoted artificer in 1919. He made two documentary films, Enchanted Regions of the Great Barrier Reef (1939) and Roving Coral Seas (1940), which featured Queensland's maritime natural history and scenic attractions. Seconded (1942) to the Queensland Department of Harbours and Marine, Marshall was appointed assistant chief inspector of fisheries in 1943, and from 1946 held the post of ichthyologist. He began a journal, Ichthyological Notes. He regarded publication of his book "Fishes of the Great Barrier Reef and Coastal Waters of Queensland" (Sydney, 1964), the pinnacle of his career as a scientist. Others, however, saw his main contribution as establishing the scientific section in his department, the forerunner of the Queensland government's comprehensive fisheries research services. He died on 30 June 1976 and was survived by his wife (Dorothy Agnes nee O'Donnell), a son and three daughters. (Information sourced from Noel M.
