Margaret Alice Murray was born in India in 1863 to British parents. She returned to England in 1886 and in January 1894 enrolled in University College, London for classes in Egyptology with the recently appointed professor, W. M. Flinders Petrie. Trained by Petrie and his assistants, Murray would become the first woman to work full-time as an Egyptologist. She remained at University College, where she was appointed as a junior lecturer in 1898 and progressed through the academic ranks becoming an Assistant Professor in 1924. She was awarded an honorary doctorate in 1931.
While Petrie spent his time in the field, Murray's role was to remain in London, teaching the classes, which would prepare students to be sent out to Petrie in Egypt, running the administrative end of the Department of Egyptology and maintaining the Petrie Museum. This meant that the author of over eighty books and articles on ancient Egypt was only able to excavate with Petrie in Egypt for one season, at Abydos in 1902. Still, Murray found other outlets for her interest in field work, excavating in the summers in Malta, Minorca and Petra, as well as in England. Murray also had other interests in addition to Egyptology. She was an early suffragist and may be best known to the general public for her numerous publications on folklore and witchcraft. A gifted teacher, Murray retired from University College, London in 1935, having trained two generations of Egyptologists. She led an active retirement, remaining connected to the University until her death in 1963.
The majority of Margaret Murray's papers are held by University College, London. The material held by Vander Poel is limited, including a small selection of letters, lecture texts, and drawings for publication. The letters documenting the conflicts of the 1932 excavation season at Tell el Ajjul are especially important for the insight they provide on the late career of Sir Flinders Petrie.
