Admin History/Bio
Phyllis Marshall (b. Barrie, ON, 4 Nov 1921) was a Canadian singer and actress. She studied piano as a child and was known as a track athlete, but made her debut at 15 as a singer on radio station CRCT. She then performed with Jack Arthur and on CBC radio with Percy Faith.
Her first nightclub engagement was at Toronto's Silver Slipper, September 1938, with the Canadian Ambassadors. Encouraged by the CBC announcer Byng Whitteker to sing blues and jazz, she performed during the 1940s with various Toronto dance bands, including an 18-month stint at Toronto's Park Plaza Hotel 1944-46, with her own trio, and on tour 1947-8 in the USA with the Cab Calloway Orchestra.
A contemporary of Eleanor Collins among early black performers on the CBC, Marshall appeared 1949-52 on radio's 'Blues for Friday' (later 'Starlight Moods') and starred on TV's 'The Big Revue' 1952-4, 'Cross-Canada Hit Parade' 1956-9, and other shows. She performed with Canadian jazz notables including Oscar Peterson and Bert Niosi, and also starred in the Canadian National Exhibition grandstand show. She performed in England on BBC TV in 1959 (The Phyllis Marshall Special) and again in 1964 in nightclubs. Her LP That Girl (1964, Cap FS-614), recorded in the company of US jazz stars Buck Clayton and Buddy Tate, captures Marshall's light, secure singing style and received a Juno Award as 'good music product LP'. Marshall had earlier recorded for Monogram in 1949.
Her second career, as an actress, began in 1956 at Toronto's Crest Theatre and included dramatic and musical roles in stage, radio, and TV productions such as the revue Cindy-Ella (1964), CBC radio's 'The Amen Corner' (1970), and CBS-CTV's Night Heat in the mid-1980s. She continued to sing on occasion - eg, at the ACTRA Awards in 1977, and for Freedom Fest (Harbourfront) in 1988.
Marshall is remembered as one of Canadian television's earliest stars, and as a pioneer among black Canadian performers.
She died in Toronto in 1996.

Scope and Content

Administrative History
Jack Marshall was born in 1919 in Glace Bay, Cape Breton. His parents were Louis and Rose and he was the seventh of 11 children. His father owned a tailor shop and made a fair living. Unfortunately, Louis passed away in 1933 and the family had a difficult time making ends meet after his death during the Depression years. Jack was a fair student and a talented athlete. After he graduated, he completed a year of business studies at Mount Allison University but had to drop out due to lack of funds.
He enlisted in the Royal Canadian Ordinance Corps on 6 May 1942. He was first stationed in Aldershot, England, where he was selected as a pre-officer cadet. Rather than attending officer training school, Jack decided to join the North Shore New Brunswick Regiment and head off for battle. His regiment partiicpated in the Normandy Beach invasion in 1944. He served for 58 days and after surviving that bloody battle, he returned to England to complete his officer training courses. After he graduated, he was appointed a Lieutenant with the Canadian Infantry Corps. For the following year he served in Holland and Germany and took over the D Company platoon.
While in England, he married Sylvia Rothman who was from Britain. Towards the end of the war, he was promoted to the rank of Captain. The couple moved to Canada and established roots in Glace Bay and later Cornerbrook, Newfoundland, where they had their three children. Jack opened up a chain of drug stores on the island. In 1950, he joined the Royal Newfoundland Regiment and was promoted in 1953 to Major and Commander. He later was raised to the rank of Lieutenant Colonel, and ultimately in 1959, was apointed Commander of the Royal Newfoundland Regiment.
In 1968 he decided to run for office for the Federal Conservative Party.He won his seat and served as the MP for his riding up until 1974. In 1978, Prime Minister Trudeau named him to the Senate. He subsequently established and chaired the Senate Sub-Committee on Veterans Affairs. During this time and later on, he became known as one of the great advocates for Canadian veterans. During the 1990s, in fact, he served as National Commander of the Jewish Veterans and was later appointed Grand President of the Canadian Legion.
He retired from the Senate in 1994 at the age of 75 and opened up a bed and breakfast with his second wife, Evelyn White. In 2004, Jack Marshall passed away at the age of 84.
