Ernest Edward Marshall (1877-1939), Chairman of the Anglo Metal Co

1939 Obituary [1]

Mr. Ernest Edward Marshall, Chairman of the Anglo Metal Company, Ltd., died on April 6, 1939, at his London home. Mr. Marshall was well known in the non-ferrous base-metal business.

Born in Constantinople in 1877, he was educated in England and returned to Turkey, where he was engaged for a short while prior to going to Australia to work for some years with the Broken Hill Proprietary Company in Melbourne.

In the early part of this century he became a travelling representative of Aron Hirsch & Sohn, of Frankfurt, during which time he made his headquarters in London. When the question arose of opening an office for this firm in Lima, Peru, Mr. Marshall was chosen to do so. During the years when he worked in South America he took an active part in developing the mineral industry of Chile and Peru.

After the Great War he came to London and joined his brother, the late Mr. F. W. Marshall, in starting the firm of Marshall Brothers. This firm was succeeded in 1926 by the Anglo Metal Company, Ltd., of which Mr. E. E. Marshall became the first Chairman, a position that he occupied until his death.

The activities of the Anglo Metal Company, Ltd., cover a large number of countries all over the world, in most of which Mr. Marshall was well known, and he will be greatly missed by a large circle of friends. Mr. Marshall was also on the Boards of Roan Antelope Copper Mines, Ltd., Mufulira Copper Mines, Ltd., and Rhodesian Selection Trust, Ltd.

He was elected a member of the Institute of Metals in 1925.
