Good Afternoon All,
John Nason has informed me that James P. Murphy ’52 died yesterday, Sunday, 11/27/11, peacefully in his sleep. Jim was a close friend and classmate of John’s and others in our group. He had been bravely fighting multiple debilitating illnesses, in and out of hospitals for a number of years until his body just gave out. As much as his wife, Marge, and their 6 children will miss Jim, all agree that he is in a better place. may he rest in peace

Jim was Chairman of the CUNY System for 12 years a short while back. At the same time, Fred Salerno ’65, was Chairman of SUNY, Jay Olivo ’55, was President of NYU and Rudy Giuliani ’65 was Mayor of New York. As John so aptly put it, ” An age of Glory for Manhattan Alumni.”
Jim was one of the best. He will be missed. Please keep Jim, Marge, their 6 children and families in your Prayers. Thank you God Bless.
