Thank you.Chitra Ragavan:   You come from a humble working class, Irish Catholic family in Boston. In some ways, you were an unlikely candidate for the CIA.William Murray:   That's true. At the time I joined virtually everybody who had come in before me and the people were still coming in were all Ivy League, sort of East Coast big families, long established families, et cetera. I was a shot in the dark. I wasn't sure how it was going to work out.Chitra Ragavan:   What was your background?William Murray:   My father was in the Navy during World War II. And then used the GI bill after the war. Got an education as a design draftsman. Worked on a lot of really interesting large engineering projects like the Polaris submarine and the B-58 Hustler and a whole host of missile systems for Raytheon and Honeywell and various other companies around the Boston area. I was always fascinated with what he did, the technology, et cetera. But he had a very large family. There were eight of us. I was the oldest. So trying to feed a family like that and house us et cetera. He wound up working a lot of times, two jobs.William Murray:   It was not particularly a struggle for us to exist.
