Biographical Note for Hendrix-Murphy Foundation (1978-) :

Murphy Programs are designed to enhance and enrich the study and teaching of literature and language at Hendrix College. The programs seek to invigorate the curriculum, enrich student experience, and encourage faculty development. They accomplish these goals by, among other things, bringing to Hendrix eminent artists, scholars, poets, translators, literary critics, authors, and theatre directors. These distinguished visitors teach classes, present lectures, serve as writers-in-residence, give readings, direct plays, and contribute to the life of the college in many other ways.

The late Mr. Charles H. Murphy, Jr., former Chair of the Board of Murphy Oil Corporation and former member of the Hendrix Board of Trustees, established these programs in 1978 in memory of his mother, Mrs. Bertie Wilson Murphy. A 1905 graduate of Galloway Women's College--which later became part of Hendrix College--Mrs. Murphy possessed a lifelong love of literature and language, to which these programs are exclusively dedicated.
