Profile of an Actor:
Maurice Barrymore

Marshall was indirectly responsible for launching the Barrymore Dynasty. Maurice Barrymore was a relatively unknown actor when he passed through Marshall with an acting troupe. At a tavern near the railroad station, Barrymore was dining with a male friend and the friend's female companion, when a bartender insulted the woman. In the fracas that followed, the friend was killed and Barrymore wounded.

His appearance at the trial brought him national attention from Harper's and Leslie's Illustrated Newspaper. Perhaps more than he would have gotten as an actor. He was the father of John, Lionel and Ethel Barrymore.
