Larry ’65 and Ann (Twomey) ’65 Murray
Larry Murray ’65 readily announces that going to Merrimack was part of his “charmed life.” As the fourth son of parents who immigrated from Ireland, Larry was pointed by a priest in his hometown of Arlington toward Merrimack. He carpooled to classes and worked weekends loading trucks at Hood Milk in Charlestown.
Larry and his wife, Ann ’65, met at Merrimack. Ann majored in English while Larry chose economics. “I think the campus looks absolutely gorgeous now,” Ann says. “When we went there, it was very different. There weren’t many buildings and there were just these little sapling trees.”
When Larry aced the LSAT, he earned a full scholarship to Suffolk Law School. Larry eventually started his own firm, Murray and Quill in Winchester. Today Larry specializes in land use, real estate conveyance and zoning work.
He and Ann remain involved with Merrimack, from attending concerts and Valentine’s Day Masses to financial contributions. Larry is also involved with the Prelaw Society on campus.
“Merrimack was very special to both of us,” he says. “It’s important for us to give back to Merrimack because that community has given so much to us.”
