Whatever happened to Arnold Murray, Alan Turing's friend who was convicted for theft. I could not find any later information on Murray or any recorded interview of his reminiscence of Turing. Thanks.
It looks like you might want to read the book about Turing:
- Alan Turing : The Enigma by Andrew Hodges
This is the book that the movie the Imitation Game was based on. In this book Hodges discusses interviewing Murray in 1980, and there appear to be several pages discussing the relationship. The book, on page 675 mentions Murray feeling guilty after Turing's death, being a musician in the 60's, and later entering married life (no more details about that on this page). Murray appears to have died in 1989.
Since this work is under copyright, only bits can be see online, so if you are truely interested, get a copy of the book.
By the way, I don't see where Murray was convicted of theft over this incident.
Arnold was my uncle. He was convicted of homosexuality like Alan. I have read two books and they both have a different perspective of Arnold. He remained in Manchester and got married and had 2 kids. They split up. He moved away to London and got married again and had 2 more kids. The relationship broke down. He was a musician who had work published. He did enjoy mixing with intellects, musicians, art people. Anyone want to know anything specific. Apparently Alan and Arnold stayed in contact
