The Marshall Foundation is a great supporter of literacy and education in the community. The Tucson Festival of Books has been a proud recipient of their support for many years. Without organizations like the Marshall Foundation, many of the great things our community experiences at the festival wouldn't be possible. Including a wonderful booth from the Children's Museum!
The Marshall Foundation's story is a fascinating part of Tucson and the University of Arizona's distinct history. Louise Foucar Marshall was truly a trailblazer in her day, making her living as a university professor and businesswoman. We are proud to honor her memory with presentations that honor women's history and their contributions to academia and the world. Learn more about the Marshall Foundation and Louise Foucar Marshall!
