Description A British ambassador to Washington from 1917 until 1918, Arthur C. Murray served as the Assistant Military Attaché to the British Embassy. While Murray worked with Franklin Roosevelt the two men became close friends. They continued writing to each other until Roosevelt's death in 1945. The Murray- Roosevelt letters reveal how the President's foreign policy evolved prior to World War Two. Murray’s early letters cover his involvement in the Irish Home Rule Council. They also include his contact with Woodrow Wilson's key adviser during the Great War, Colonel House. These items refer to the Quarantine speech of 1937 and the Munich settlement of 1938. Murray's other contacts include the President of the Board of Trade during the Great Depression, Walter Runciman; and the Canadian Prime Minister during World War Two, William Lyon Mackenzie King,
