This website was written to state the truth about Lieutenant William McMaster Murdoch, RNR. Information and editorial assistance came from the maritime historian, Mr. Ernest Robinson, and Samuel Scott Murdoch, the nephew of the First Officer of the RMS 'Titanic'. The writer has been reliably informed that there is no definite evidence stating that William Murdoch either killed others or that he took his own life. The corruption allegation in Cameron's film is agreed by scholars to be an invention.
The recent release in the United Kingdom of the film 'Titanic' has yet again brought the actions of her crew under public scrutiny. Unfortunately, this has also perpetuated myths about the principal officers such as Captain Smith and his First Officer William McMaster Murdoch, Lieutenant RNR.The film has incorrectly portrayed Murdoch as having taken a bribe to let a man into a lifeboat, later shooting a passenger before committing suicide by shooting himself for being responsible for the collision.
