Morgan Murphy was a US politician.


In May 1971 Murphy returned from Vietnam with Robert Steele having concluded that around 15% of U.S. servicemen in Vietnam were addicted to heroin, an announcement that helped Richard Nixon launch the "war on drugs".[1]

Murphy partnered with union official John Serpico in Studio Networks, Inc. a venture to purchase a building on Chicago's near west side and develop it as a film studio. Serpico was a former vice president of the Laborers' International Union of North America (LIUNA) as well as former president of the Central States Joint Board (CSJB), a labor organization made up of as many as eight local unions.[2][3][4]
