Studio portrait of Marcellus Murdock as a young boy. As a young man, Murdock worked in various positions at the Wichita Eagle, a newspaper founded by his father, Marshall M. Murdock. In 1907 he assumed the position of publisher and eventually bought the rival paper, the Wichita Beacon. His interest in aviation led him to become a pilot in 1929 and to help create the Wichita Municipal airport at that time. He was a booster for Wichita and active in civic affairs throughout his life (1883-1970).
