Rocky Mountain Radicals

My brother Bill has an article this issue in the prestigious Montana: The Magazine of Western History. (external link) Entitled Rocky Mountain Radicals, it traces the story of our family’s distant Uncle James Murray, a copper king who made his first fortune in Butte, Montana.

To paraphrase a reviewer, Bill has singlehandedly rescued Murray from obscurity. Careful to lead a guarded and private life, Murray has heretofore been little reported on and never at this depth. Bill has also garnered a book deal based on Murray and our whole family is looking forward to it being published in 2017.

Bill’s website is here (external link). Look to it for more information on the mysterious and little known Murray. And for more on Bill Farley, a terrific historical researcher and writer.
