Merrill Pasco on: Marshall and "That Fellow" MacArthur
Merrill Pasco PASCO: You know, Marshall called everybody by their last name, except General Patton, who he had played polo with for many years, had known him at Fort Myer earlier. But when he referred to MacArthur, he always said, "that fellow MacArthur". We all thought "fellow" was a code word for S.O.B. I can't prove that, but I'm sure it was, I feel it was an indication of his irritation and worry about MacArthur's flamboyant personality and the way he did things. It was not Marshall's way of doing things. But, he always said, "that fellow MacArthur".
