Sie ist Mitautorin einer Menge seiner Bücher. Marx war Gründungsmitglied vom Council on Underwater Archaeology und der Sea Research Society, diente dem Society's Board of Advisors und 1972 nahm er an der Schaffung des "Research/professional degree" zum Doktor der Seegeschichte (Doctor of Marine Histories) teil.[4]
