Biographical history

Robert A. Moore was the dean (1946-1954) and head of pathology (1939-1954) at Washington University School of Medicine. Under Moore's leadership, he was a factor in the change of the financing of medical research and education due to the federal government becoming a valuable source of grants for training, research, and improvement of medical facilities. Also, he was the first dean to invite African-American physicians to join the attending staff in 1949. Along with his administrative duties, Moore was a well-regarded figure in the field of pathology, having authored a popular textbook on the subject.
