President of the Bank of Marin and Chairman of the Board of the Independent Bank Shares Corporation (a group of six independent banks located in Marin, Sonoma, Mendocino, Lake, Solano, Sierra, Nevada, and Placer Counties), William Paul Murray is the son of William P. Murray who founded the Bank of Marin in the 1920s. Both father and son were born in San Rafael. Here, William explains the growth in banking, the many changes it has undergone,, and details the function of a banker in the community. From 1974 to 1984, Carla Ehat, with partner Anne Kent, and later Genevieve Martinelli, interviewed a broad spectrum of Marin County's long-time residents, from ranchers to politicians, including descendants of early pioneer families. This program was co-sponsored by the Marin County Free Library and the Moya Library in Ross. The resulting archive, consisting of nearly 300 recordings and their corresponding transcriptions, are housed in the Anne T. Kent California Room at the Civic Center branch of the Marin County Free Library.
