The Duquesne University community was saddened by the passing of Dr. John E. Murray Jr., chancellor and professor of law, on Wednesday, Feb. 11. Murray served as Duquesne’s 11th president from 1988 through 2001. He was 82.
“Duquesne-and Pittsburgh-lost an incredibly talented leader, teacher, scholar, author and lawyer today,” said Dr. Charles J. Dougherty, Duquesne University president. “His contributions here at Duquesne, as well as his service on numerous government, charitable and legal boards and committees have improved the lives of many over the course of his remarkable career.”
