Murray in 1965 and immediately created with colleagues a new undergraduate program in Microbiology and Immunology. He was very proud of his contributions to undergraduate courses, and the first Honors class of the department in 1968. His research specialty was in applied microbiology. Dr. Robinson was a strong advocate of the Canadian Society of Microbiologists and over the years served as Secretary-Treasurer and President. He retired in 1987.
