Murray was charged with assaulting Baltimore Police Sergeant Charles Kelly on June 20, 1964. During the extradition hearing, Murray testified before Texas Secretary of State Crawford Martin that she feared she would be murdered should she return to Maryland. After reviewing the evidence, Texas Governor John Connally issued an order of extradition. Murray’s legal team, consisting of lawyers from the Texas Civil Liberties Union, appealed the decision.

This film from KHOU-TV Channel 11 in Houston contains a series of short news segments that would have aired as highlights to news stories. Many are silent and would have been voiced over by the anchorperson during a live broadcast. The titles for each segment are the originals created by KHOU-TV. The clips on this reel all date from October 1-16, 1965. This series includes news footage capturing the royal visit by Prince Harald of Norway to Houston as well as the extradition hearing of atheist activist Madalyn Murray in San Antonio.
The digital preservation of this collection was made possible by a grant to the Texas Archive of the Moving Image and the Houston Public Library from the Texas State Library and Archives Commission and the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services.
