Murdock, Victor, journalist and member of Congress, is a native Kansan, having been born at Burlingame, Osage county, March 18, 1871. The next year his parents—Marshall M. and Victoria (Mayberry) Murdock—removed to Wichita, then a frontier town, where Victor attended the public schools and the Lewis Academy. At the age of ten years he commenced learning the printer's trade, working at the case during his vacations, and when fifteen years old he became a reporter. He rapidly developed the "journalistic instinct," and five years later went to Chicago, where for some time he held a position on the staff of one of the metropolitan dailies. In 1890 he was united in marriage with Miss M. P. Allen, and in 1894 he became managing editor of the Wichita Eagle. In 1902 he was nominated by the Republican district convention for Congress, was elected the following November, and has been reëlected at each succeeding biennial election to 1910. At his last election he carried every county in the district, receiving a clear majority of 4,298 over three competitors.
