John Murry Springfield *54

Published in Mar. 20, 1991, issue

JOHN MURRY SPRINGFIELD *54, principal of Memphis Univ. School and faculty member of that institution for 31 years, died Aug. 8, 1989, at Baptist Hospital East in Memphis, Tenn. He had suffered a heart attack at the age of 60. He was an accomplished musician, whose undergraduate degree was earned at Rhodes College in Memphis. He was awarded a master of fine arts degree in music. Formerly he had served as both organist and choirmaster at Holy Communion Episcopal Church. However, he was a communicant of St. Mary's Episcopal Cathedral. Both churches are located in Memphis. Mr. Springfield was obviously talented in both educational administration and performance of liturgical music, to which his life was devoted.

Sincere sympathy is extended to his surviving parents~ and to two brothers, all residents of Memphis.
