Marshall Bartholomew (March 3, 1885 in Belleville, Illinois – April 16, 1978) was the conductor of the Yale Glee Club from 1921 to 1953. He is credited with taking the group's repertoire into more difficult classical music. He produced a series of arrangements of American spirituals and folk songs, many of which were published by the G. Schirmer company as the "Yale Glee Club Series." The Virginia Glee Club has incorporated several of his arrangements into its repertoire from as early as the 1925 Staunton Theatre concert, including "De Animals" and "Little Innocent Lamb."
