The late John Marshall was one of the first administrators of the University College of Townsville (UCT) and was a keen photographer who took many photos of the area, including many aerial shots taken during the 1960s. Marshall was appointed as a member of staff to the University College of Townsville in 1961, its first year of operation. He served continuously for twenty-five years with the College and, subsequently, James Cook University.
