S2:E02 | Dr. Murray Murdoch

January 22, 2020

Dr. Murray Murdoch, Distinguished Professor of History and Government, has served at Cedarville University since 1965. He came to the University at a time of great social upheaval in American society, a time when African-American leaders, such as Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., were voicing a message of love and equal opportunity for all. These themes continue to ring strong for Murdoch, who co-leads the annual Civil Rights Bus Tour during fall break. All are deserving of just and fair treatment as image bearers of God and as those for whom Jesus died.



In addition to serving as a history professor at Cedarville, Murdoch was also the men’s tennis coach for many years, amassing a record 563 victories during a 29-year coaching career, and is a member of the Cedarville University Athletic Hall of Fame.

Murdoch is also an author, having written Portrait of Obedience: The Biography of Robert T. Ketcham and the 100-year history of Cedarville.
