Robert Lee Moore (18821974), a prominent mathematician, was a
professor of mathematics at The University of Texas at Austin for almost fifty
years. He is well known for his work in pointset topology, but is most
remembered for his work as an educator. During his long career, Moore
supervised over fifty doctoral students, including three members of the
National Academy of Sciences, three presidents of the American Mathematical
Society and four presidents of the Mathematical Association of America.
Moore was born November 14, 1882, in Dallas, Texas, the fifth child of
Charles Jonathan and Louisa Ann Moore. He developed an interest in mathematics
early in life, teaching himself out of a calculus textbook before entering The
University of Texas in 1898 at the age of sixteen. There he studied under
George Bruce Halsted, simultaneously earning a B.S. and M.A. in 1901. After
graduating, Moore spent a year as a Fellow in mathematics at UT and taught an
analytic geometry course. During his fellowship, Moore discovered a redundancy
in Hilbert's formulation of a set of axioms for geometry; this redundancy,
unbeknownst to Moore, had already been published earlier that year by E. H.
Moore (no relation) of the University of Chicago. Nonetheless, R. L. Moore's
version of the redundancy was "elegant" and an important early achievement in
his career.
After teaching high school mathematics in Marshall, Texas, for a year
(19021903), Moore was accepted in the mathematics program at the University of
Chicago. He completed his doctorate in two years under the direction of E. H.
Moore and Oswald Veblen, graduating in 1905 with a thesis entitled "Sets of
Metrical Hypotheses for Geometry." From 1905 until returning to the University
of Texas in 1920, Moore held teaching posts at several universities: University
of Tennessee at Knoxville (19051906), Princeton University (19061908),
Northwestern University (19081911) and the University of Pennsylvania at
Philadelphia (19111920). In Pennsylvania, Moore supervised three Ph.D.
students: John R. Kline, George H. Hallett, and Anna M. Mullikin.
In 1920, Milton Brockett Porter, head of the pure mathematics
department at The University of Texas, recruited Moore away from the University
of Pennsylvania. Moore joined E. L. Dodd and H. J. Ettlinger on the faculty,
which was soon augmented by H. S. Vandiver. He served on the faculty until he
was forced to retire in 1969 at the age of 86. Moore had a major influence on
the culture of pure mathematics at UT, both in his personality and his teaching
style.
Moore regularly taught undergraduate calculus and precalculus courses
in addition to his more advanced classes. In his advanced classes, Moore's way
of teaching, known as the "Moore Method" or the "Texas Method" began with the
careful selection of students who did not have an extensive knowledge about the
topic to be discussed. He would then give the students some basic axioms and
definitions and ask them to construct proofs and examples for different
theorems. The students were not allowed to read any texts, discuss the problems
among themselves, or seek help from other professors in the department. Instead
of lectures, the classroom experience consisted of a student explaining his or
her proof at the board while other students asked questions. If the student got
stuck, or if a flaw was found in his or her proof, another student would take
his or her place at the board.
R. L. Moore's honors included: University Research Lecturer (1929);
National Academy of Sciences, member (1931); American Mathematical Society
(AMS), visiting lecturer (19311932), and president (19371938); American
Association for the Advancement of Science, vice president of mathematics
section (1947); and the title of Distinguished Professor at UT. He also served
as editor for both the Transactions of the American Mathematical Society and
the colloquium publications of the AMS.
Moore married Margaret MacLellan Key in 1910, and their marriage lasted
64 years, ending with his death. They had no children. Moore had many hobbies,
including target shooting, automobiles, boxing, and genealogy. He also had a
great interest in his health and even went so far as to prescribe his own
glasses for many years.
After his retirement, Moore was honored with the dedication, in 1972,
of Robert Lee Moore Hall, home of the physics, mathematics and astronomy
departments on the corner of Dean Keeton and Speedway on the UT campus. Moore
suffered a stroke in May of 1974, and a second stroke in June. He passed away
October 4, 1974.

The R. L. Moore Papers, 1875, 18911975, consist of correspondence,
research notebooks, drafts, teaching material, mathematical notes, printed
material, photographs and other material documenting the life and career of
Robert Lee Moore (18821974). The papers are divided into three series: (1)
professional, (2) personal, and (3) books, dissertations, journals and
offprints.
The majority of the collection pertains to Moore's professional career,
including sections on correspondence, mathematical works, teaching,
professional organizations and honorary societies, and general material.
Moore's professional correspondence provides a rich look into his work and the
work of his contemporaries. Correspondents include: R. C. Archibald, S.
Armentrout, J. and L. Barrett, E. F. Beckenbach, E. T. Bell, R. H. Bing, G. D.
and G. Birkhoff, G. A. Bliss, M. Bocher, E. W. Chittenden, L. E. Dickson, E.
Dyer, M. Frechet, G. B. Halsted, J. R. Kline, C. Kuratowski, S. Lefschetz, E.
H. Moore, R. G. D. Richardson, M. E. Rudin, W. Sierpinski, J. M. Slye, M.
Stone, O. Veblen, G. T. Whyburn, and R. L. Wilder. The section on mathematical
works includes published and unpublished works by Moore and others. It also
contains an extensive collection of Moore's notes and drafts. Insight into
Moore as a teacher can be gained from the "Teaching" subseries. Administrative
correspondence and departmental business, as well as class records and notes
and correspondence about the 1967 film about Moore's teaching style, Challenge
in the Classroom, are included. Other sections of Moore's professional life,
including his presidency of the American Mathematical Society, and his
relationship with Professor George Bruce Halsted are also represented in this
series.
The personal series documents Moore's family life, hobbies, health, and
finances, and includes subseries on: correspondence, family, education,
health, finances, genealogy, automobiles and motoring, rezoning, notes, printed
material, and photographs. Moore corresponded with many of his family members,
but the deepest correspondence was with his brother, Jennings Moore. In
general, only the letters received by Moore are present, although in some
cases, drafts or copies of Moore's letters are included in the collection.
The final series includes books, offprints, and journals from Moore's personal
library, as well as a set of dissertations from some of Moore’s and H. S. Wall's
graduate students. Moore’s books include mathematical works, as well as books
demonstrating his interest in other topics, including medicine, genealogy, boxing,
sexology, and literature. The journals include mathematical and scientific
journals, including many publications of the AMS, as well as other magazines and
newsletters. Offprints and dissertations are arranged alphabetically by the
author's last name.
Several appendices relating to this inventory are available. They include: a
crossreference list to Moore's notebooks, a list of publications by Moore, Moore's graduate
students and their graduation dates, and the books available from Moore's library.
Please contact archivist to obtain copies of any of these appendices.

Many of Moore's students and colleagues also have collections with the
Archives of American Mathematics. In addition, please consult the
R. L. Moore Legacy Collection, a collection of oral histories, class notes and
reminiscences of Moore's students and colleagues, for other material relating

In the summer of 1974, at Mrs. R. L. Moore's request, Professor R. E.
Greenwood of the Department of Mathematics at The University of Texas at Austin
began moving papers and books from the Moore home at 904 West 23rd in Austin to
Professor Moore's offices in the R. L. Moore Hall on the UT campus. In the
spring of 1975, after Professor Greenwood completed the basic organization of
the papers, most of the collection was moved to the Harry Ransom Humanities
Research Center. There further processing was conducted by Dr. Albert C. Lewis,
curator of the History of Science collections. The sorting and analysis of
Moore's notebooks was completed by M. H. Proffitt of the University of Texas at
Austin in 1975. In 1984 the R. L. Moore Papers, along with the rest of the
Archives of American Mathematics, was moved to the Dolph Briscoe Center for American History
where Frederic Burchsted continued to care for the material. Reprocessing of
the R. L. Moore Papers by Kristy Sorensen began in March of 2003. The current
finding aid reflects the efforts of all these individuals.

Subseries Abstract 



This subseries is divided into six parts: (1) Published papers,
(2) Unpublished papers, (3) Foundations of Point Set Theory, (4) Bibliographies
(5) Notes, and (6) Manuscripts by others. Published papers are divided into
working files and offprints, and are filed under their publication number,
listed in the bibliography in
appendix two. Working files include
correspondence, drafts, notes, and revisions related to the publication. Some
of the offprints are annotated. All other sections are arranged
chronologically, with the exception of "Manuscripts by others" which is first
arranged alphabetically by the author's last name (if known). This section
includes papers to be refereed, student papers, dissertation drafts, preprints,
and letters and notes about these papers. Note that additional copies of
Foundations of Point Set Theory can be found in the R. L. Moore Library (see
appendix 4, available upon request) and the R. L. Moore Legacy Collection.
Consult
appendix one for more information on
the notebooks in this section and possible crossreferences.

Subseries Abstract: 



This subseries is arranged alphabetically by the name of the
professional organization or honorary society. In the case of the National
Academy of Sciences (NAS), election materials that disclose the names of
nominees have been returned to the Academy. See correspondence between Albert
C. Lewis and A. V. Astin (MarchJuly 1975) in the HRC series of the R. L. Moore
Legacy Collection for documentation of this decision. The sorting of restricted
and open material was done by Dr. R. H. Bing, a member of the NAS. In cases
where RLM made lists of nominees' names on the verso of letters, the front of
the letter was photocopied and included in the collection.
