Arthur Murray (born April 4, 1895) quit his job at an architecture firm to take ballroom dancing lessons from Vernon and Irene Castle. In 1912, he set up a correspondence course, sending paper footprints through the mail for students to follow. He promoted his franchise of dance studios through radio, a best-selling book and a TV show. Murray resigned in 1965, but his studios still exist.
