Allison (White) Marshall ’74 and Donald Marshall ’71

In Spring of 1973 after a disagreement with my house mates, I stayed with my brother in South East Dorm, sleeping on the floor with the ok from his roommate. The arrangement was great for all of us since I had a car and Sea Grape money and they had the room. Unfortunately, I didn't have a meal pass. Well in 1973 I met my future wife Allison, who was also a South East Dorm resident and a member of the first class of women. It turned out that Allison was a good friend of my brother. Thanks to Fr. McMahon's mercy and poor eyesight I was able to stay with my brother the whole academic year. My brother got married that year in the Japanese Gardens near the big house. To my great delight Allison was invited with her roommates and better yet she had no date. Somehow I got the courage to dance with Allison and the world turned into a spectacular place. I didn't see Allison until the beginning of the next school year when I met her and her new roommate and summoned the courage to ask her out for dinner. To my great delight she said yes, which eventually led to engagement in March of her senior year and marriage in 1975. Those years are wonderful to remember realizing that love does last. We've been married 42 years.
