Biographical notes:

Salutarian and president of the Princeton Class of 1874, Marquand later founded Princeton's Department of Art and Archaeology, sharing with Charles Eliot Norton of Harvard the distinction of being the first to introduce the serious study of art into the curriculum of the American college. His own life-work was an eight-volume catalogue raisonné of the works of the ateliers of members of the Robbia family, 15th- and 16th-century Florentine sculptors and ceramists.
