Murphy's Theatre in England program in 1983 is one of my fondest memories. I was between sophomore and junior year in college. Murph was a ball of energy, aided and abetted by his lovely Laura. I'm so glad I got to be part of their world, even for a mere three weeks. My condolences to the Swander family.

I'm so sorry for your loss Michael. He was a kind man and I know what he meant to you. I will keep you in my thoughts and prays as you grieve. Bless you

I am so sorry to hear this. Murph changed my life through his classes, and his student productions. I was offered the gift of playing Berowne for him in Love's Labor's Lost, and as a result discovering myself and going on to have a career as a director and, like him, a professor. I speak about him in every Shakespeare class I teach. I believe Murph was the single greatest teacher of Shakespeare in his and my lifetime. And he was a great, great friend.

My daughter Brenda and I, had the full benefit of Theatre in England when she was 17 and the program had just started. What a rich and fulfilling experience it was for both of us. He was a great man.
