History

John Murray Schütz CULBERTSON

John Murray Schütz Culbertson known as Murray was born 27 December 1883. Unfortunately he was born without part of his left arm. This did not seem to hold him back too much. As you will see below he played cricket for the first team at his school and was a champion doubles tennis player. He became a Civil Engineer, involved in the building of dams in Scotland, and working in Abbyssinia and Karachi, Pakistan.

Most of the following are extracts from the archives of records of the school magazine, The Chronicle, at St Edward's School, Oxford, which he attended from June 1896 to June 1901.
