RESOLUTION BY THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS OF THE OKLAHOMA CITY BRANCH, FEDERAL RESERVE BANK OF KANSAS CITY.
Whereas the Board of Directors of the Oklahoma City Branch of the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City is called on for the first time since the establishment of the bank to lament the passing of one of its members, it is their desire to give a brief appraisal and expression of their deep appreciation of the association with the late Senator Murphy, a highly esteemed and respected Director of the bank:
Be it resolved that in Senator Murphy we recognized the highest type of patriotism and fidelity. As a member of this board his services were always actuated by the highest motives and his counsel on problems arising was of the soundest nature and the maturest judgment. He was intensely devoted to any type of public service and regarded a public position as a sacred trust. He loved his country with a devotion that was rare and splendid. He was an outstanding Oklahoma pioneer. From the days of humble beginning, Oklahoma as a whole regarded him as a trail blazer and a devoted son. He came to this territory as a young man and gave the best years of his life to the building of the vast empire. It is upon the sturdy characters
of such pioneers and patriots as Senator Murphy that the foundations of our great State rest. He gave his all to the state he loved so well and at last rests peacefully in her bosom with his place in Oklahoma history secure, his memory revered by all who knew him and the enviable record of a life well spent and a career worthy of emulation; therefore
Be it resolved by the Directors that a copy of this resolution be spread on the records of the Oklahoma City Branch, Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City; that a copy be given to the members of his family and that an additional copy be forwarded to the Oklahoma Historical Society.
