Moore, who was a professor of English at Beloit College in Wisconsin, succeeds Dr. C. William Heywood. Heywood is retiring as dean and returning to teaching history part-time at Cornell.

     Born in 1941 in Niles, Michigan, Moore was graduated in 1963 with a A.B. in English with honors from the University of Michigan. He continued his education at Northwestern University where he earned the M.A. and Ph.D. in English in 1964 and 1970, respectively.

Beloit is a four year liberal arts college of national reputation. Beloit and Cornell are both members of the Associated Colleges of the Midwest, an academic consortium of thirteen colleges. Moore moved up the ranks from instructor of English to a full professorship in 1979.

     He has earned numerous grants for photographic research as well as awards for his black and white photography. He has published a number of articles on a variety of subjects in both academic journals and the popular media. He co-authored an introductory college text entitled First Lessons in Black and White Photgraphy (1978). In progress are two books, Reflections on the College Experience and Man and Boy: A Memoir of the Male Experience in the 1950's.

     He was elected Beloit College Teacher of the Year in 1977.

     A vocalist, Moore has participated in various groups and productions including a men's vocal quartet and a college madrigal group.
