Norman C. Moore ’50

Published in Nov. 6, 2002, issue

Norm died Jan. 16, 2002, at home in Philadelphia. Coming to Princeton from Penn Charter School, he was all-Ivy guard on three successive Big Three Championship football teams and a member of Tiger Inn.

After graduating with honors, Norm served at a frontline aid station in Korea as a first lieutenant in the Army Medical Corps. He returned to earn a master's in American studies at Penn in 1955. As assistant dean of students at Princeton from 1954-59, he quelled the "Rock Around the Clock" riot, taught Shakespeare, and coached JV football.

In 1959, Norm became dean of students at Wabash College in Indiana. There, he also coached the football line and lectured in classical history for 25 years, before he retired in 1986 as associate dean of the college.

He fought back from a serious stroke in 1986 to lead a full and independent life in Philadelphia as an enthusiastic opera and orchestra patron and a devoted Phillies fan.

Our sympathy goes to Connie, his wife of 46 years and the daughter of George Cook '26; sons Charlie '88 and Patrick Supanc '92; daughters Martha and Allison; daughter-in-law Susan Finch Moore '87; and five grandchildren.

I was in the same platoon as Norman in OCS Class 31 at Fort Bliss, Texas, in 1952. A very nice person, and sorry to hear of his death.

Two remembrances: After football practice, you could often see Dean Moore jogging the track with a Marsh-Wheeling cigar in his lips. Second, the Sigma Chi's, Delts, and Phi Psi's were having a monstrous snowball battle as Dean Moore walks through the middle of it, racing cap, scarf, and tweed sports coat smoking a Marsh-Wheeling. There literally was a blizzard of snow and ice balls, but he never blinked, looked straight ahead, and not one snowball got close to him. Many other memories, but he was a heck of a mentor.
