Memorable Manitobans: Richard “Dick” Moore (1908-1996)

Educator, school inspector.

Born at Elgin on 29 October 1908, son of Richard Moore and Mary Ellen Reid, he received an Arts degree from the University of Manitoba and taught at Nesbitt School (1936-1937) and Hartney School (1937-1941). During the Second World War, he served as a link trainer and tail gunner in the Royal Canadian Air Force. He returned to teaching after his military discharge, serving as the Principal of Starbuck School (1945-1946). He was Principal of the Fort Garry Collegiate until 1949 when he was appointed a Manitoba School Inspector, based at Steinbach and later at Carman. In 1961, he was transferred to St. James, serving there until retirement. In 1944, he married Grace Elizabeth Armstrong and they subsequently had two children. He died at Winnipeg on 7 July 1996.
