Edward E. Marsh
Ed Marsh became an affiliate member in 2005 and has been a full member since 2008.
He was introduced to the Explorers Club by American author L. Ron Hubbard who carried expedition flag #105 (1940) and #163 (1961). Ed provided funding to expedition flag #60 (2012) and is currently financing a private expedition in the Caribbean. While continuing to support terrestrial discoveries his foremost interests lay in exploration of terra incognita: the human mind, as well as mankind’s next big frontier—space exploration. As science fiction precedes science fact and plays an important role in society Ed has curated golden age libraries featuring complete, signed, original works of Arthur C. Clarke, Robert A. Heinlein,
L. Ron Hubbard, John W. Campbell Jr. and E.E. Smith at his library in Playas de Rosarito, Baja, and the Edward E. Marsh Special Collections Reading Room at the Malcom A. Love Library of his alma mater, San Diego State University. His current projects and activities include continued philanthropy and Mexican musical heritage preservation and dissemination. His previous business activities involved founding and growing companies in real estate and mortgage finance. He is now retired and enjoys vistas of the Coronados islands from his home in Rosarito Beach.
