Lyman Moore ’36

Published in Sept. 9, 1998, issue

Lyman died Apr. 26, 1998, at home in Rohnert Park, Calif. At Princeton he majored at the School of Public and International Affairs and was elected to Phi Beta Kappa. In 1940 he completed a master's in political science at the U. of Minnesota.

He next joined the Bureau of the Budget in Washington, D.C., followed by work for Booz, Allen and Hamilton as a consultant helping modernize the Philippines's budgetary system. Returning to America, he helped establish the World Health Organization and held executive officer positions with the Natl. Center for Research and Development, the Natl. Institute of Mental Health, the Bureau of Disease Prevention and Environmental Control (now HEW), which granted him its Superior Service Award, and the Natl. Heart and Lung Institute. He was a part-time teacher and popular guest speaker.

In the 1970s he was president of the American Youth Hostel Federation, which gave him its Natl. Award for Distinguished Service. Lyman was listed in three separate editions of Who's Who in America, Government and Health Care.

He is survived by his wife, Evelyn, daughter Sandi Mooney, son Lyman, five grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren. This Princetonian was indeed a man of great talents.
