Jonathan Marshall was born in New York City in 1924. He graduated from the University of Colorado in 1946 with a bachelor's degree in economics and political science. From 1952 to 1959, he was editor and publisher of Arts Magazine, and in 1959 he became a program associate at the Ford Foundation in New York. He earned a master's degree in journalism from the University of Oregon in 1962. He bought the Scottsdale Daily Progress in 1963 and settled in Scottsdale, Arizona.
The Progress was sold to Cowles Media in 1987. Marshall and his wife, Maxine, who had worked by his side at the paper editing its weekly magazine, founded the Marshall Fund of Arizona to further their many philanthropic and civic endeavors. The Marshall Fund of Arizona operated until 2003 and was active in the following areas: environmental protection, the arts, human needs and social problems, civil liberties, promotion of world tolerance, and conflict resolution.
Jonathan and Maxine Marshall were also founding members of Temple Solel, Paradise Valley's first Jewish congregation, and of the Arizona chapter of the American Jewish Committee. Marshall's grandfather, Louis Marshall (1856-1929), was a founder of the American Jewish Committee.
Jonathan Marshall died in 2008.
