Historical or Biographical Note
After a year-long internship in Nashville, Moore was appointed in 1929 as neurological house officer at the Boston City Hospital. He lived most of the rest of his life in Boston, except for a period of military service during World War II. Moore studied psychiatry with Dr. William Herman (1931) and Dr. Hanns Sach (1934-1938). He was awarded a Commonwealth Research Fellowship at Harvard Medical School, where he began teaching in 1950. Moore also maintained a private psychiatric practice in Boston.
Moore successfully combined a professional career as a psychiatrist with an energetic amateur career as a poet. He composed over 50,000 sonnets over the course of his life. Moore passed away in 1957.
