Years after attending Pawling School together, George Murphy (the leader of Pawling School students in this poem) and Henry Montgomery (who changed his name to Robert) became reacquainted in Hollywood. Like Montgomery, Murphy's acting career took him from Broadway to Hollywood. George got his start on Broadway, partnering with his wife as a dance act. Murphy moved his family to Hollywood in 1935, appeared in musicals and comedies until 1952, and also, like Montgomery, served as president of the Screen Actors Guild. His career was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for his accomplishments in motion pictures. In the nineteen-fifties, Murphy entered politics, culminating with his election to the United States Senate in 1964 where he represented his home state of California. He subsequently moved to Palm Beach, Florida, where he died at the age of 89 from leukemia. In 1924 Henry changed his given name to Robert and went on to become one of Pawling School's most famous alumni. His career was honored with two stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The first was awarded for his accomplishments in motion pictures, the second, for his work in television. Henry attended the Pawling School for two years from September of 1919 through June of 1921. Although he did not graduate from the school and subsequently moved to Hollywood, he later returned to the area and purchased a home in nearby Patterson, New York. Pawling School was renamed Trinity-Pawling School in 1947. See this exhibit's epilogue for more information about Robert Montgomery's acting career and life.
