The first 46ers were brothers Robert and George Marshall, and their guide and family friend Herbert Clark. The Marshalls thought up the idea after spending much of their childhood in the region and examining the collection of Verplanck Colvin maps owned by their father, Louis Marshall. They devised criteria for the high peaks they would climb, choosing any summit that was more than 4,000 feet (1,219 m) above sea level in elevation with at least 300 feet (91.4 m) of vertical rise on all sides and separated from the next closest summit by 0.75 mile (1.2 km). They initially planned to climb only the summits above 4,000 feet (1,200 m), of which there were 42, and did so between 1918 and 1924.

They climbed the 4,000 ft (1,200 m) mountains later, on the suggestion of friends.

At the time that they undertook this goal, there were no trails up many of the peaks, making this a particularly formidable accomplishment. One of the peaks, Mount Marshall in the MacIntyre Range, has since been named in honor of the brothers, and the brook that is the most popular approach has been named after their guide.
