William Calder Marshall (1813-1894), Scottish sculptor. In June 1864, Calder Marshall was commissioned to make an allegorical group representing Agriculture, one of the four representing various “skills” to be installed on the Albert Memorial. “The letter strikes me as having too much sawder [flattery] and too much of a composed look about it, to be altogether genuine.” 45
