In about 1948, Marvin earned a position as an Associate Professor of History at Longwood College; a few years later in 1954, Dorothy joined the Longwood faculty as an assistant professor of English. Marvin was active with several student organizations including, Pi Delta Epsilon, Pi Gamma Mu, The Rotunda, the Canterbury Club, and the Student Government Association. Dorothy was also active outside the classroom serving as advisor to Theta Sigma Epsilon, Boerc Eh Thorn (the Honorary English Society) as well as an advisor to the Young Women’s Christian Association (YWCA). Both left Longwood College around 1966 and moved to the Virginia Beach area.
