Marshall Adams Taylor, M.D., 90, of Barrington, RI and Vero Beach, FL, died Sunday, March 20th at the Philip Hulitar Hospice Center in Providence. Born in New Haven, CT, he was the son of the late Sterling P. Taylor, M.D. and Marion Adams Taylor.  
He was a graduate of the Choate School, Harvard College, and New York Medical College, and was a Navy veteran of World War II, serving aboard the escort aircraft carrier USS Solomons. He obtained his postgraduate training at the Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit and the University Hospitals of Cleveland. In 1960 Dr. Taylor moved to Providence and opened an office for the practice of obstetrics and gynecology; he remained in private practice until 2003. He was on the medical staffs of Women & Infants Hospital, Rhode Island Hospital, Miriam Hospital, Butler Hospital and Roger Williams Hospital for many years and served as president of the medical staff at Women & Infants Hospital from 1986 to 1987; in 1996 he received that hospital’s Medical Staff Distinguished Service Award. He was active in Planned Parenthood of Rhode Island (PPRI) and served as chairman of its Medical Advisory Committee following the death of Dr. Charles Potter. In 1985 he received PPRI’s Dr. Charles Potter Award.
Dr. Taylor is survived by his daughters, Victoria Taylor of Winchester, MA and Courtney Taylor of Providence; his granddaughters, Helena and Lela Castro of Providence; a stepdaughter, Elizabeth Wood of Vail, CO; his former wives, Nancy Taylor of Providence and Nancy Wood of Warwick; and a sister, Anne Barrett of Dedham, MA. His brother, Sterling P. Taylor, Jr., predeceased him. Aside from his dedication to his medical practice, Dr. Taylor was an avid sailor and lover of the sea. He regularly attended the Rhode Island Philharmonic and had an appreciation for music and theater all of his life.
