Biography

James O. Murfin was born January 7, 1875, in Portsmouth, Ohio. He attended the University of Michigan and received literary and law degrees in 1895 and 1896. From 1897 to 1908 Murfin was a member of the law firm of Bowen, Douglas, Whiting and Murfin in Detroit, Michigan. Murfin served as a Republican member of the Michigan state senate (1901-1903); as judge of the Detroit Circuit Court (1908-1912); and as regent of the University of Michigan (1918-1933 and 1934-1937). During World War I, he served as chairman of district board number one for the Eastern District of Michigan.


Collection Scope and Content Note

The Murfin papers relate mainly to JOM's activities as regent and as member of the University of Michigan's Board in Control of Athletics. The collection contains information concerning Michigan's departure from and return to the Big Nine Conference and the amateur-professional dilemma in college athletics. The regental material documents such problems as administrative oversight, particularly selection of the president and settlement of the William Cook estate. As member of the Law Club's governing body, Murfin helped to shape the university's case when Cook's bequest was contested by his wife. Although Murfin was influential in Michigan Republican party affairs, he filed his political papers separately and thus they are not included here.

The collection has been divided into two series: Correspondence, 1901-1940 and Topical Files which contain personal information and legal briefs concerning in part the Cook bequest
