Note:
Marsh's obituary was headlined, "Oasis Temple Designer, Marion Marsh, Dies at 76," indicating that this was a prominent edifice, yet little is known about it. Tube #11 in the Hawkins-Kibler Collection contains material on "Building for Oasis Temple, 26 May 1953." The Charlotte city directory of 1956 lists the Oasis Temple near the Masonic Temple (329 South Tryon St.), the Egyptian style edifice designed by Charles Christian Hook many years before. (Both have been lost.)
