 William McMaster Murdoch - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Lieutenant William McMaster Murdoch RNR (February 28, 1873 - April 15, 1912) was RMS Titanic's First Officer, and was one of more than 1,500 people who died when the luxury liner sank in the Atlantic in 1912.
Murdoch was born in Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland, the fourth son of Captain Samuel Murdoch, a master mariner, and Jane Muirhead, six of whose children survived infancy.
The Murdochs were a long and notable line of Scottish seafarers who sailed the world's oceans as early as the 19th century; William's father and grandfather were both sea captains as were four of his grandfather's brothers and it is little wonder that he followed in the family tradition.
