Biographical Note

Sara Alderman Murphy was born in Wartrace, Tennessee, on June 17, 1924, the daughter of David M. and Sadie Stephens Alderman. She received a B.A. in Social Studies and English from Vanderbilt in 1945, and a M.S. in Journalism from Columbia University in 1946. In a short autobiography, Murphy relates that at Columbia University she developed a social consciousness on race that she lacked as a young girl in the South; that social consciousness propelled her into social activism later in her life.

She married Patrick C. Murphy, and together they had three children: Ellen, Patrick, and Robert. From 1947 to 1950, Murphy was a member of the faculty of Northwestern State University in Natchitoches, Louisiana. She and her family later moved to Little Rock, where she served on the faculty of the University of Arkansas in Little Rock in 1958. The late 1950's witnessed the eruption of racial tensions in Little Rock, as the city attempted to integrate the whites-only Central High School in the fall of 1957. When Governor Orval Faubus ordered the Little Rock public schools closed in the fall of 1958, a group of women led by Adolphine Fletcher Terry organized the Women's Emergency Committee to Open Our Schools (WEC). Following her convictions opposing racial prejudice, Sara Murphy joined the WEC, serving as a member of its board in 1962 and 1963. When the WEC disbanded in 1963, Murphy redirected her energy into the Panel of American Women (PAW), a multi-ethnic, multi-racial group which sought to lessen racial and religious tensions by promoting understanding through discussion. In 1963 Murphy founded a branch of PAW in Little Rock; her activity in PAW culminated in her serving as vice-president of the national PAW from 1971 to 1974. Murphy's activism earned her recognition among Arkansas's highest governing officials, and from 1972 to 1975 she served as vice-chairperson of the Governor's Commission on the Status of Women.

In 1967 Murphy began working in the Arkansas Department of Education (ADE). Completing her Ed.D. in Education Administration at the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville in 1977, she became the ADE's associate director in 1979. She held that position until 1985, when she became an independent educational consultant working with the Arkansas Educational Renewal Consortium; she served as that organization's executive director in 1987 and 1988.

Murphy renewed her career as an activist in 1982, when she joined Betty Bumpers, the wife of Senator Dale Bumpers, in founding Peace Links, an organization intended to lessen international tensions through exchanges of persons and discussion. She served as the president of Arkansas's Peace Links from 1982 to 1984, and in the late 1980s was instrumental in arranging exchanges between women from the United States and the Soviet Union. Murphy also found a local focus for her activism; from 1989 to 1993 she chaired the advisory committee of the Conflict Management Program at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock. While remaining active in Peace Links, she dedicated the last years of her life to writing Breaking the Silence, a book detailing the role of the WEC in the Little Rock integration crisis. But the onset of cancer prevented her from finishing her book. She died on April 15, 1995; her son Patrick completed the editing of Breaking the Silence.

Scope and Content Note

This collection is a combination of papers accumulated by Murphy during her years as an activist and materials used in writing her book. Among the latter are the papers of Billie Wilson, a former member of WEC. Wilson gave Murphy her papers, which included correspondence, pamphlets, and press clippings, to aid in the writing of Breaking the Silence. Because of the overlapping subject matter in Murphy's and Wilson's papers, Wilson's materials have been integrated into the greater collection. In the course of doing research for her book, Murphy conducted several dozen interviews with participants in the Little Rock school integration crisis; cassette tapes and transcripts of these interviews make up a major portion of this collection. Also, Murphy examined materials at several different repositories, including the Arkansas History Commission and the University of Arkansas at Little Rock Special Collections and Archives. To reflect the composition of her original research files, photocopies made for Murphy of original documents from these repositories have been retained.

Materials in this collection include interviews on cassette tapes, transcripts of interviews, films and video cassette tapes, correspondence, booklets and pamphlets, newspaper clippings, and broadsides. When possible clippings have been integrated with other materials on the same subject. Among the materials of the collection are several front pages from the Arkansas Democrat and Arkansas Gazette dating from the period of the Little Rock school integration crisis. The collection also includes three photographs featuring Sara Murphy.

Arrangement of the Papers

Materials are arranged and described in two series:

  2. Subject Files. Boxes 8-17.

Detailed Description of the Collection

The following contains a detailed list of the materials in the collection

series 1: Materials on Individual Persons,

1950-1994

Boxes 1-7

This series consists of materials pertaining to individual persons, most of whom participated in the events surrounding the desegregation of Little Rock schools in 1957-1959. A large portion of the materials are interviews, some on cassette tapes and others written transcripts. Most of the interviews available on cassette tapes were conducted by Sara Murphy while writing her book Breaking the Silence; she transcribed most of them. Other interviews in this series were conducted by independent researchers John Pagan, John Luter, and John Kirk; Mimi Dortch of the Arkansas Interfaith Conference; Charlotte Gadberg of the University of Arkansas at Little Rock Oral History Project; and T.H. Baker of the New York Times Oral History Program; most of their interviews are available as written transcripts only. The files of a few individuals, including Sara Murphy, Orval Faubus, Adolphine Fletcher Terry, and Billie Wilson, also include correspondence, their writings, and press clippings about them.

subseries 1: Individual Files,

1950-1990

Boxes 1-5

Various papers comprise this subseries. In most cases these materials are interview transcripts. Apparently Sara Murphy transcribed her own interviews, editing them to include only what she considered the most important points in her conversations with interviewees. In addition to interview transcripts, some files include letters and other materials. The file on Clarence Thomas consists of items put forth by women's organizations opposing his nomination to the United States Supreme Court.

An asterisk after the name indicates that this collection has a cassette tape interview corresponding to the transcript in the file.
