Biography

George Dominic Murray (July 6, 1889 – June 18, 1956) was an Admiral in the United States Navy and early naval aviator.

Biography

Murray was born in Boston, Massachusetts, attended the U.S. Naval Academy, graduating in 1911 and became a naval aviator in 1915. During World War II, he commanded the aircraft carrier Enterprise (CV-6), from 21 March 1941 to 30 June 1942, which included the Doolittle Raid on Tokyo and the Battle of Midway. At the end of the war, he was the commander of the Mariana Islands, and accepted the Japanese surrender of the Caroline Islands aboard his flagship, the cruiser Portland (CA-33).

He commanded the First Fleet from August 1947 to August 1948.

He retired as a full Admiral in 1951, died in San Francisco, California on 18 June 1956, and is buried in Arlington National Cemetery.

In 1961, Murray was posthumously designated the third recipient of the Gray Eagle Award, as the most senior active naval aviator from 1947 until his retirement.
