A native of Blantyre, Scotland, Murray came to America in 1902 and was naturalized nine years later. He went to work in a coal mine near Pittsburgh, and by 1912 was serving on the United Mine Workers' international executive board; eight years later he was the vice-president of the International Union, working alongside John L. Lewis. In 1935 he was one of the organizers of the Committee (later Congress) for Industrial Organization, and in 1940 he became its president.
