Biography of Frank Wood Moore

Frank Wood Moore, born on 12 August 1881, was a student at the University of Glasgow in the academic year 1912-13.

Born in Brooklyn, New York, USA, he was the son of Robert Martin Moore (1840-1896), a merchant from Cape Town, South Africa, and Virginia Lafayette McDonald. He attended the Hotchkiss School in Connecticut, then obtained a BA from Yale University in 1903. Upon arrival in Glasgow in 1912, he studied Political Economy (Honours) and Political Philosophy.

Moore then registered for the US army in Cayuga, New York on 18 September 1918, making it unlikely that he saw military action. At the time he was assistant professor at Auburn Theological Seminary (a role he had taken on in 1916, instructing in Music and Elocution) and was married to Margaret Stevens Otheman.

Moore passed away on 17 June 1947 in Auburn, Cayuga, New York.
