The bridges Council member David Murdoch built during his life aren’t the kind that stand out in a place like Pittsburgh, unless you know where to look for them. They’ve connected high school students to formative experiences in foreign countries, business executives to opportunities overseas, nonprofit leaders to people who can help advance their work, and curious people to faraway stories that cast new light on Pittsburgh.
