Excerpt from the obituary published in The Berkshire County Eagle, Pittsfield, Berkshire Co., Massachusetts, April 29, 1936, pg. 1:

Z. Marshall Crane Dies at Hospital in Boston Following Long Illness:
President of Z.& W.M.Crane and Vice President of Crane & Company Was Public Benefactor - Built Boys' Club Pool and Auditorium - Active in Town Affairs - Served with Near East Relief Foundation:
Dalton, April 29- Z. Marshall Crane, 58, public benefactor, prominent citizen, well-known paper manufacturer, died in Phillips House of the Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston at 9 o'clock this morning after a long illness.
Death came after an heroic fight of several years. The cause of death was chronic myelogenous leukemia. With Mr. Crane when the end came was Dr. Richard B. King.
Mr. Crane was descended of a family long identified with achievement, civic interest and philanthropy in the Berkshires and he helped in large measure to carry on these traditions. Many are they who can testify to his benefactions, but about which Mr. Crane said nothing. Institutions as well as individuals were recipients of his generosity.
Flags were placed at half staff today on the Crane mills, the Community House, the Irving House and the Town Hall in Dalton and the various institutions with which he was identified in Pittsfield. The Crane mills and offices will be closed the day of the funeral. The Berkshire Museum in Pittsfield will be closed the rest of the week.
Z. Marshall Crane was born in Dalton on March 5, 1878, son of the late Zenas and Ellen (Kittredge) Crane. He was graduated from the Hotchkiss School, Lakeville, Conn. in 1896 and from Yale University in 1900...
Mr. Crane is survived by his sister, Mrs. Samuel G. Colt of Pittsfield; four nephews, James D. Colt of Pittsfield, Zenas C. Colt of Auburn, N.Y., Samuel G. Colt Jr. of New Lebanon, N.Y., and Peter Crane of England; and two nieces, Mrs. Henry K. White of Boston and Miss Judith Colt of Pittsfield.
