Geology lecturer, and later Professor, the late Marcus Marsden volunteered to organise the Olympic torch relay in 1956. This mammoth task involved the Australian Army, Olympic officials and many volunteers. But his contribution, that eventually spanned over 50 years, to football at the University of Melbourne was so vast and so enduring that it is no accident that he is the first ever Life Member of the Melbourne University Football Club.
