Upon leaving Webb School, Moore returned to Chapel Hill to complete his course work toward his Ph.D.  He would finally receive his Ph.D. in 1963 after completing his dissertation on “Territorial Arkansas, 1910-1936.”

Moore completed his dissertation while serving as Assistant Professor of History at Northeast Louisiana State University in Monroe, Louisiana, where he taught from 1060-1965.  Interestingly enough, while teaching at Northeast, he would have as a student Don Jones, a future long-time member of UCA’s history department.  Dr. Jones stated that Dr. Moore had a big-impact on his life in deciding to make a career of teaching history.

Dr. Moore joined the faculty at the University of Central Arkansas in 1965 as Associate Professor of History.  He help eh rank of Associate Professor until 1970 when he was promoted to full-Professor of History.  Dr. Moore continued serving as Professor of History until his retirement in 1993.  In addition to being a Professor of History he is also the creator of the Oral History Office, the forerunner of the Ozark Heritage Institute, and was its director from 1968-1993.  Dr. Moore was also instrumental in the creation of the UCA Archives.

The teaching of American and Arkansas history were Dr. Moore’s specialty along with teaching senior seminar courses which instructed students how to conduct research and write history.  Dr. Moore is the past president of the Faulkner County Historical Society where he edited the society’s quarterly, Faulkner Facts and Fiddlings, from 1970-1974.  He is also past president of the Arkansas Historical Association, 1974-1976, and was elected to the Council of the Oral History Association and would serve as its President.

Books which were authored by Dr. Moore include:  Arkansas, Land of Opportunity, an Arkansas in the gilded Age, 1874-1900.  Dr. Moore collaborated with fellow UCA faculty member Dr. Glenn Smith in creating “Scene” a monthly KETS-TV program that discussed current events in the light of history.  Among his most noteworthy articles is “Oral History.” which was published in History News in March, 1975.

Dr. Moore is a member of Phi Alpha Theta, Kappa Sigma, the Southern Historical Association, and America Association of State and Local History.  In 1999 he was elected Distinguished Professor Emeritus of History at UCA.  Dr. & Mrs. Moore make their home in Conway, Arkansas.
