Dr. Kate Murry is one of the characters of the A Wrinkle In Time novel.


Meg's mother is a microbiologist, wife of Dr. Alexander Murry, and mother of the four Murry children. She is considered beautiful by the Murry children and others, having "flaming red hair" and violet eyes. Her physical attractiveness, academic and scientific accomplishments give Meg a bit of an inferiority complex. She is introduced in Chapter One, and usually referred to as Mrs. Murry. As in her husband's case, her first name is given in the subsequently published An Acceptable Time. The television version of her character is renamed Dana.

She has two doctorates, and in later books is described as having been a Nobel Prize winner for her research in isolating farandolae in a mitochondrion.
