In 2014, William F McMurry was inducted into the Kentucky Civil Rights Hall of Fame. He was recognized as one of thirty-five people nominated that year in recognition for having improved quality of life in the areas of human and civil rights. McMurry was specifically inducted for his work in such cases as a low-income woman who sued a hospital that released information on her medical status, a family whose young son was jailed after they missed a payment for a couch, and his work with the Southern Poverty Law Center to win a case against the Imperial Klan of America.

In 2015, Bill was interviewed by famed reporter Betty Baye on his life and induction into the Kentucky Civil Rights Hall of Fame as part of an Oral History Project.
