MetadataShow full item record
Ludmilla Ksensenko (Luda) Murphy B’60, ’61 earned a degree in economics from the University of Connecticut, and upon graduating, won a full fellowship to study at SAIS undertaking her first year at the Bologna Center and her second year in Washington, D.C. After SAIS, Murphy devoted her career to the U.S. Department of Labor where she was an economist. She later conducted seminars for senior policy makers from around the world, particularly in Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union. After retiring from the government, Murphy was a consultant in the Ukraine for Financial Markets International, working with Ukrainian officials to develop labor market information programs. Murphy also served as an international observer in Ukraine's parliamentary elections. Her story would not be complete, however, without her meeting Dick Murphy, her husband, while at SAIS, and of all places, in the Library.
