Excerpt from John Marshall: An Address Delivered at the College on February 4, 1901, the Centenary of the Installation of John Marshall as Chief Justice of the United States
To-day marks the first centennial of the installation of John Marshall as Chief Justice of the United States. Among the distinguished men who have held that high office, he has been deemed by the American Bar Association as worthy of special honor. At the annual meeting of the Association held in Buffalo in 1898 a committee was appointed, consisting of one member from each State and Territory and from the District of Columbia, to bring the matter of a proper observance of "John Marshall Day" to the attention of the bench and bar of the United States. The Committee has recommended that not only the Bar Associations of the several States should appropriately observe the day, but that commemorative exercises should be held in all schools of law and institutions of learning throughout the country, "to the end that the youth of our country may be made more fully acquainted with Marshall's noble life and distinguished services"; for the lessons that are to be learned from a study of the life and services of the "Great Chief Justice" are valuable not only to the legal profession, but to all who are students of our constitutional history, and who can draw inspiration from a life of rare usefulness and virtue.
In the time allowed to me I cannot hope to give anything like a full sketch of the varied services which John Marshall rendered to the republic, but only to present an imperfect sketch of his character and of the salient features of his career, which filled more than the allotted span of life and was crowded with splendid achievement.
