Building 4200 Gallery


Building 4200's lobby features a bronze bust of the center's namesake, George C. Marshall. I primarily remember Marshall as the Army Chief of Staff during WWII, but he won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1953 for laying the foundation for rebuilding post-war Europe, which later became known as the Marshall Plan.

There's a famous photo of President Eisenhower and Marshall's widow unveiling this bust during the MSFC dedication ceremony on September 8, 1960.
