D4 TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 9, 1999 LOS ANGELES TIMES ifllflriGS OBITUARIESFUNERAL ANNOUNCEMENTS Iris Murdoch; Leading British Writer By ELAINE WOO TIMES STAFF WRITER Iris Murdoch, one of Britain's most revered modern novelists, died Monday at a nursing home in Oxford, England. She was 79. A philosopher by trade and temperament, Murdoch wrote more than 30 novels peopled with cerebral characters embroiled in philosophical turmoil over the meaning of love and freedom and how to live a moral life. She won England's most prestigious literary honor, the Booker Prize, in 1978 for "The Sea, the Sea" and was one of a handful of writers ever made a Dame Commander of the British Empire. Four years ago, the prolific author announced that she was suffering from severe writer's block. The next year her husband, literary critic John Bayley, amplified on that admission when he reported to a London newspaper that his wife had Alzheimer's disease. Murdoch later acknowledged that she was a victim of biological forces beyond her control. "I'm afraid I am waiting in vain to write," she said. "Perhaps I had better find some other kind of job." British novelist Malcolm Bradbury on Monday called Murdoch one of "the four or five great novelists of the second half of this century to come out of Britain" and ranked her alongside such major writers as Anthony Burgess and William Golding. "I hope we won't just remember the sad end of the tale," he said, "but the brilliant mind that she Used to have." Murdoch was born in Dublin on July 15, 1919, the only child of Anglo-Irish parents. She grew up in the suburbs of London, earning a scholarship to a private school when she was 13. She studied classical languages and philosophy at Somerville College, Oxford, and flirted with communism in the early 1940s, an affiliation that kept her out of the United States several years later when she won a scholarship to study here. She worked briefly for the British Treasury during World War II and later for the United Nations refugee program in Austria and Belgium, where she met the French existentialist Jean Paul Sartre. She wrote a study of Sartre and later came to be closely associated with the existential movement, although she later denied ever being Associated Press Author Iris Murdoch in 1998. a Sartrean or an existentialist. A central theme in most of Murdoch's novels was love, which she once defined as "the perception of individuals ... the extremely difficult realization, that something other than oneself is real." She dealt with love of all kinds heterosexual, homosexual, incestuous and adulterous. She created comically tangled webs of relationships, as in "An Unofficial Rose," in which the character Hugh Peronett decides to fall in love again with his ex-mistress, who is in love with her female assistant, who, it happens, is desired by Peronett's son. But as the writer Ian Hamilton observed in a New Yorker magazine article some years ago, in Murdoch's world, love was more mental than physical: Her characters were "afflicted by passion as if by a disease a sort of brain disease, in fact, for her books are barely erotic at all." Reviewers generally liked her work, and even those who didn't one said her books were "Harlequin romances for highbrows" still took her seriously. Murdoch never read her reviews (not even "the long serious pieces," she said 1981) and was, according to her husband, singularly uncompetitive in a market driven by sales and sound bites. She worked in solitude, rarely discussing her work with her husband, except to consult on technical details, such as what a character should eat. She wrote her manuscripts in careful longhand, but didn't tolerate editing of any TROUP Continued from Bl familiar items are "Daddy" (his first hit, a No. 1 song for seven weeks for Sammy Kaye), "Baby, Baby All The Time" (a hit, along with "Route 66," for Nat King Cole), "The Meaning of the Blues" and the lyrics for "Girl Talk." Born Robert W. Troup Jr. on Oct. 18, 1918, he was immediately drawn to music through his piano playing father. And despite earning a business degree from the University of Pennsylvania, he soon turned to songwriting as a career. After serving in the Marine Corps as a captain during World War II, he headed to California, giving himself two years to make it in the music business helping his ambitions enormously by writing "Route 66" along the way. In a review of a television special dedicated to Troup's works, the late, influential jazz critic Leonard Feather wrote that his tunes "were variously sophisticated, witty, ingenious, trivial or just funny." They also were particularly welt-favored by jazz artists and were recorded by, among others, Sarah Vaughan, Joe Williams, Peggy Lee and the Manhattan Transfer. Which was not surprising, given Troup's solid skills as a pianist and accompanist. Much of his time in the 1950s and '60s, was spent as an active participant in Los Angeles' then-burgeoning West Coast jazz scene ("I think I worked every club in Los Angeles," he once said). But his closest connection to jazz came in 1957, when Troup began a 2V-year run hosting a KABC television series titled "Stars of Jazz," which went national for a few months in 1958. One of the earliest and most successful airings of jazz on television, the show featured an extraordinary lineup of artists, including Stan Getz, Carmen McRae and Erroll Garner, as well as West Coast stars June Christy, Julie London (Troup's wife), Shorty Rogers, Bud Shank and Howard Rumsey's Lighthouse All-Stars. "It was an exciting time," Troup told writer Stephen Stone. "We got started in spite of a reluctant producer. ... I made an appeal on the air for listeners to write in if they liked the program. Within three days we received 7,000 letters." Television and film fans of the 1970s, however, knew Troup from a completely different context. His film career included parts in "MASH," "The High Cost of Loving," "Number One" and "First to Fight." He also was cast in musical roles in "The Five Pennies," "The Gene Krupa Story" and "The Duchess of Idaho," and wrote scores for "The Girl Can't Help It" and "Man of the West." Troup appeared in the television shows "Dragnet," "Fantasy Island," "Acapulco" (for which he also wrote the music) and "Musical Chairs." From 1972 to 1977 he played the role of Dr. Early in the medical series "Emergency!" His wife, singer Julie London, also appeared in the show which was produced by her first husband, actor Jack Webb in the role of Dixie. "I loved doing the show," Troup told Feather, "because I enjoy being active, and because of the camaraderie we were known as the happiest crew at Universal." Despite the success of "Emergency!," the show largely marked the end of Troup's visibility as a songwriter and musician. In the intervening decades, he and London lived quietly in Encino, raising what they described as a "his, mine and ours family" that included two children from Troup's first marriage (Cynnie and Ronne), two children from London's marriage to Webb (Stacy and Lisa) and three children from the Troup -London marriage (Kelly and the twins Reese and Jody), all of whom with the exception of' Stacy, who died in an automobile accident survive him. Funeral services are pending. Heckman Is The Times' jazz writer. kind, an attitude that caused some critics to regard her work as unnecessarily long "loose, baggy monsters." Nor did she feel any compulsion to compare notes with other writers. "I certainly do not talk to other writers about my work," she said emphatically in a 1981 interview. Her refusal to heed reviews seemed odd considering her marriage to a highly regarded literary scholar, but Bayley respected this. He usually did not read her books until they were published. Bayley and Murdoch were married for more than 40 years, and their marriage, the New Yorker's Hamilton said, was "the stuff of doting legend" in literary circles. Bayley had set out to be a novelist, too, but turned to criticism after marrying Murdoch in 1956 because, he acknowledged, she was just better at fiction. "Iris," he wrote, "was one of those meteors who are instantly recognized." Their deep affection for one another imbued Bayley's recent memoir, "Elegy for Iris," with heartbreak and humor. He described how the writer with a luminous mind spent much of her last years watching "Tele-tubbies" on television, how she beseeched him with little cries and anxious looks, how she would begin sentences but never finish them, all day long. "Most days are, for her, a sort of despair. . . . She does not know that she has written 26 remarkable novels, as well as her books on philosophy; received honorary doctorates from major universities; become a dame of the British Empire." But she also remained herself in many ways her quickness to smile, her gentleness and eagerness to oblige. Oddly, Bayley noted, her descent into Alzheimer's eerily resembled her pre-Alzheimer's self, in her "tranquil indifference" to much of what matters to most people, such as fashion or what others think. Murdoch and Bayley, who survives her, had no children. In 1994, Murdoch said that her parents and her work were two of the most important things in her life. But the most important, she said, was her husband. "To have had a happy marriage," she said, "is a very good thing." John Bayley's book "Elegy for Iris" will be reviewed In Sunday's Book Review.

CORDAY, Eliot MD Hillside Mortuary 800-576-1094 DORAN, Patrick Michael In the spring of 1944, the Army sent draftee Pat Doran to the University of Chicago to learn Chiese. That accomplished, he would see the war to its conclusion-in the snow and rain of France, Belgium, and Germany. Born in Los Angeles, Pat attended Loyola High School and Loyola University until the war intervened, when he returned, he graduated from Loyola University and attended Loyola Law School. He worked for 35 years for Occidental Life, in the field of group insurance and benefits, retiring in 1984 as a senior vice president of Transamerica-Occidental Life. For the next twelve years he and partner Clay Franklin of San Clemente, also a former Occidental executive, ran a consulting firm to the unions and owners they had serviced. "Pat was a real fighter, in a nice way, who tried to do the right thing with great tenacity," Franklin said. Pat traveled extensively in his work, but life-long passions for golf, hunting, and fishing with his wife, Peggy, and four children were satisfied by numerous tightiy-planned family trips. He'd be on June Lake for the morning bite, hop a four-seater to a real airport, jet to Philly or wherever and be back on the lake the next afternoon," son Kevin Doran said. For many years a member of Glendora Country Club, Pat held clubhouse court with his friends well after problems with failing eyesight and other afflictions ended times on the course. Pat Doran, 75, succumbed to complications from stroke and diabetes on February 5 in Alham-bra, his hometown of 43 years.
