Bill Murray in his 1968 high school graduation photo.
Local caddy graduates! In 1968, Bill Murray received his diploma from Loyola Academy in Wilmette, Illinois, and headed west to study pre-med at Regis University in Denver, Colorado. Pre-med? Really, Bill? That plan didn't last long, and he soon dropped out and returned to the Chicago area, where he eventually joined his brother Brian Doyle Murray in the Second City comedy troupe. Two other Murray boys, John and Joel, became actors; it's said that the acting bug tended to bite these Murrays because, as kids, they were constantly competing with each other to elicit laughter from their father, Edward Murray. The brothers also worked as golf caddies at Indian Hill Golf Club, an experience that led Brian to co-write a movie about the unsung heroes of the links -- it was Caddyshack, of course, in which Bill played deranged groundsman Carl Spackler.
