Description John Glackin “Jack” Murray (CC class of 1937/1938) graduated with a major in business. During his student days he was a member of the Phi Gamma Delta fraternity, the school band, and the staff of the Tiger newspaper, serving as business manager his senior year. His father, John W. Murray, and uncle, Joseph P. Murray, opened Murray's Drug Store in the Plaza Hotel Building (now Spencer Center) on the southwest corner of Cache la Poudre and Tejon Street in 1906. Jack Murray worked there during his childhood days and later took over the family business. Murray Drug Store served as a favorite Colorado College social center for many years and also as the college book store until Lennox House took over that function in the fall of 1941.
