Guido H. Marx was born in Toledo, Ohio, in 1871. He attended Cornell University, earning the degree of mechanical engineer in 1893. He worked in industry for two years before joining the Stanford faculty in 1895, at the instigation of Albert W. Smith, his former professor at Cornell who, in collaboration with Guido's brother Charles D. Marx, was developing Stanford's new School of Engineering. He became professor of machine design in 1908; he retired in 1936 with the rank of Professor Emeritus.
