Murphy-Anderson Marriage

“The other [interracial] couple was babysitter Mary L. Anderson, 29, of 3218 Baring st., and sexton Robert A. Murphy, also 29, of 3501 Hamilton st.” (from “Marriage Licenses; Lady Barber and Boat captain Mixed Couple,” Phila. Tribune, Dec. 4, 1965.)

The Philadelphia Tribune is the “premier black newspaper serving the greater Philadelphia region since 1884.”
