Marshall White, 1963 · 50 Stories for 50 Years · WSU Digital Exhibits

Marshall N. White was born in 1909 in Humboldt, Tennessee. He moved to Chicago with his mother when he was 15 years old. She worked in a local hospital as an aid, and he worked in the laundry. Due to his time working in the hospital, White made plans to study medicine and in 1939 he graduated from the Chicago Northwestern Institute of Surgical Podiatry.

White joined the military soon after graduation and served for five years, initially working in a hospital and police unit. In 1943 he was transferred to Kearns, Utah, working at the military station hospital. His supervisor saw that White had a talent for communicating with others and had him work in the Care Unit of the hospital where he helped soldiers adjust to civilian life.

In 1944 White became a health department officer and transferred to Ogden to help in the venereal disease clinic. As part of his responsibilities, he interviewed prostitutes, drug dealers, addicts, transients, civilians, and military personnel. He was known for his discretion and willingness to help anyone find medical treatment. He soon became known as “Doc” because of the white smock he frequently wore.

Wanting to become a police officer, White applied to work for the Salt Lake Police Department, but they refused to hire him. After working for the health department for about a year, he was deputized by the Ogden Police Department as a special officer. He and Walter S. Epps of the Weber County Sheriff’s Office, patrolled mostly through Ogden’s minority neighborhoods. In May 1949, after passing the city civil service examinations, he was officially made a police officer in the Ogden Police Department.

At first, working for OPD, he was not allowed to arrest white people or drive a patrol car. He could only ride in a car if another office rode with him, and most of the officers refused to do so. Eventually other officers and officials came to respect him. He was known as a sharpshooter and represented the OPD multiple times in the Utah Peace Officers’ Association pistol competition. In 1961 he was promoted to sergeant.

White was also president of the Ogden NAACP. He often spoke to members of the community about discrimination in Ogden and advocated for just treatment of Blacks in employment and housing.

On October 16, 1963, he was trying to apprehend Michael Jones (16 years old) who had escaped from the Utah State Industrial School. Jones shot White with a “.32 special carbine that entered the officer’s right, front side just below the ribs and came out his back.” Doc was pulled back from the hallway by Lt. Anderson, and Jones eventually gave himself up. White died three days later from his injuries. He left behind his wife, Jesse Glodene, three sons and four daughters.

White had advocated for improved recreation facilities, especially on the west side of Ogden, as early as 1955. He had argued that recreation should be planned for all people in all areas. The Marshall White Center was built in his honor and was dedicated on the fifth anniversary of his death. He posthumously received the medal of valor, and his name was placed in the National Police Hall of Fame at North Port Charlotte, Florida, in honor of his sacrifice.

Mikhail Shivlyakov and Marshall White: The more people, the kinder

Despite the tiring flight, these strong guys radiate vivacity and good health. The strongest athletes of America, although for the first time in Krasnoyarsk, did not lose their heads and admitted in unison: “We are all single guys.” But Russian heroes are family people. Otherwise, Americans and Russians are in solidarity: the car is impressive in size, the woman is the one and only, the food is only from the hands of a loved one. We talked about other details with the captains of the power extreme teams Mikhail Shivlyakov (Russia) and Marshall White (America).

– Team captains are usually chosen by leaders. Guys, tell us about your achievements in power extreme sports?

Mikhail:

— One of the most significant achievements for me is the victory of Arnold Classic in the amateur world championship in 2013. This gave me the right to become the owner of a professional card — the fastest rise in a sports career for any athlete. A professional card is a ticket to the finals of professional level competitions. The finals involve five top athletes in the world, who go through a very difficult selection, consisting of fifteen stages, as well as five of America’s best strongmen. This is a kind of unspoken struggle between two teams: the world and America. So next year I will be performing among the elite. In general, the competitions with which you start are always remembered. I have this tournament “Bogatyr Baikal”, which was held in 2007 in Irkutsk. The first pancake came out lumpy (laughs) , which energized me for further victory. At that time, I had eminent athletes in my rivals, looking at whom, there was even more desire for training than before.

Marshall:

— Well, I got my professional card seven years ago. I am one of the top five athletes in the United States, today I am fourth in the American ranking. In addition, I am one of the ten strongest athletes in the world.

– For a simple man in the street, power extreme is strong big guys pulling a multi-ton car, lifting heavy objects, and so on. What is power extreme in your understanding?

Mikhail:

— For me, first of all, power extreme is promoting a healthy lifestyle. So that the growing youth should be equal to such guys as we used to have heroes in Rus’. Well, in order to prove that these strongmen are not epic, but quite real, we are doing everything possible, for example, we hold such tournaments and match meetings as in Krasnoyarsk. Let the youth see and understand that it is possible and necessary to become strong. And then, it seems to me, for any man it is always interesting whether he will cope with this or that weight, whether he will lift the established kilograms or not. For me, these classes have already become a way of life that I will lead for the rest of my life.

Marshall:

— Power extreme for me is both work and one of my favorite pastimes. In principle, I believe that for every man to be strong is a very important factor, or rather, one of the main ones in life. This is the quality that, in principle, characterizes the strong half of humanity, and nothing frightens a man so much as the realization that he is not strong enough.

— Tell me, what is the philosophy of power extreme for each of you?

Marshall:

– The most important thing in extreme strength is overcoming something difficult. That is, the most difficult task has been set, which must be overcome. And for this, you must first overpower yourself.

Mikhail:

— As one of our great athletes used to say: “Power extreme is work on oneself”. For me, this is also one of the first rules. The stronger the enemy, the stronger I become. Confirmation of this is the current rivalry with top US athletes. It is not always possible to meet, and even on their own land. Usually we fly to them, but no matter how exhausting the road is, we give a worthy rebuff.

— Mikhail, are there those among American athletes whom you would single out in particular? Accordingly, whom will you mark, Marshall?

Mikhail:

— Let’s say, I have taken fire on myself more than once, a fairly experienced athlete, and such a rank of competition is not new to me. I carefully studied the composition of the American team: I know someone from other competitions, and I just met some of them. As you have already noted, leaders are chosen as team captains, and it is not by chance that Marshall White leads his compatriot athletes. In my opinion, Marshall is the most experienced and versatile athlete. I also consider Dan Harrison to be a serious opponent. He is a powerlifter and is very strong in certain exercises. And the rest of the guys can not be underestimated. By the way, we also have strong guys gathered.

Marshall:

— We know that there are a lot of strong people in Russia and, of course, athletes. We are also familiar with the captain of the Russian national team Mikhail Shivlyakov from participation in the Arnold Classic. Also, among our rivals, we are well aware of Vladimir Kalinichenko, a powerlifting legend. And, frankly, we are generally impressed by the very community of Russian strongmen. Your country is famous for famous athletes.

— It is generally accepted that there should be many good people. Are you so big, strong, apparently, and kind?

– Mikhail:

– We are really kind people. Quite often, complete strangers turn to us for help. Someone asks for help moving a closet, pushing a car, rearranging something from one place to another. We help everyone, we do not refuse anyone, because strength is a very big responsibility. And you need to use force only for the benefit of people, which is why every time you become even kinder. And you look at the Americans, their hospitable smile alone already wins you over, and after all, the guys, by the way, are our opponents. But this is only within the framework of the competition, but in life we ​​are glad for this meeting.

Marshall:

– I agree that the bigger the person, the kinder he is. We are such big, kind and funny cubs.

— And finally, I would like to know about your impressions of Krasnoyarsk.

Marshall:

— Krasnoyarsk is a beautiful city. We walked along the promenade, such a beauty that simply cannot be expressed in words. Oh, if it were not for the work, you would have stayed here!

Mikhail:

— Indeed, Krasnoyarsk is a modern, beautiful and dynamically developing city. You have a lot of young people. And what is especially pleasant, Krasnoyarsk residents always warmly support athletes at any events, both our athletes and those from other countries.
