Marquat Memorial Learning Resource Center

The Marquat Memorial Learning Resource Center, is greater than 10,000 square feet and is now housed in Clay Hall. The library maintains a diverse collection of library resources and services to support education, training, doctrine development and operational research requirements.

The Marquat Memorial Learning Resource Center is named in honor of Maj. Gen. William Marquat. Maj. Gen. William Frederic Marquat was born in St. Louis, Mo., on March 17, 1894, to William and Sara (Layden) Marquat. Before joining the military, he reported local features for the Seattle Times. Marquat served in World War I with the Coast Artillery Office. By the time World War II broke out, Marquat had ascended to the rank of major general. He served as a staff officer to Gen. Douglas MacArthur and the commander of the 14th Anti-Aircraft Command in the Philippines, seeing action in the Manila-Bataan campaign. His skills as a diplomat and a staff officer served him well after World War II, when he was hand-picked to organize and chair the Allied council for Japan, serving as the United States representative in determining occupation policies. Simultaneous to this chairmanship, he headed the Economics and Science Section General Headquarters for the Supreme Command Allied Powers in Tokyo from 1945–1952. Most of the post-war economic success of Japan can be directly attributed to policies drafted by this section. Maj. Gen. Marquat left Japan in 1952 as the first Chief of Civil Affairs and Military Government, Department of the Army. He served in this post until he retired in 1955. He passed away on May 30, 1968.

The Marquat Library was first memorialized in 1969 at Fort Gordon, Ga., as part of the U.S. Army Civil Affairs School. The memorialization was moved in 1973 when the Civil Affairs School moved to Fort Bragg.
