Marshall personally supported the treaty's adoption but recommended several changes including the requirement that all parties to it acknowledge the Monroe Doctrine and the United States' sphere of influence and that the tenth article be made non-binding. In Fort Wayne Marshall attended high school graduating in 1869. Indiana's delegates lobbied to have Marshall named the vice presidential candidate in exchange for supporting Wilson.
An ideological rift developed between the two men during their first term leading Wilson to limit Marshall's influence in the administration and his brand of humor caused Wilson to move Marshall's office away from the White House. Thomas Riley Marshall (March 14 1854 – June 1 1925) was an American Democratic politician who served as the 28th Vice President of the United States (1913–1921) under Woodrow Wilson. After his terms as vice president he opened an Indianapolis law practice where he authored several legal books and his memoir Recollections.
