About the Event
From 1901 to 1941 Murphy and his contracting company was the โ€œgo toโ€ for good building design and the materials to construct them. He helped frame the village's commercial and residential eclectic character, and for years, the company he founded in 1904 continued to supply building material needs for the Monterey Peninsula community.

Local architectural historian, Kent Seavey, gave an overview of Murphy's contribution to the aesthetics and material support of the community.

This program was part of the Henry Meade Williams Local History Lecture Series by the Carmel Public Library Foundation, sponsored by the Frank & Eva Buck Foundation and Robert & Lacy Buck.
