Dr. D. C. Y. MOORE

(from "Dedication New Connecticut River Bridge" published in American Enterprise Souvenir, East Hartford, Connecticut, 1908).

A conscientious physician, a gentleman who believes in living for all life is worth, and one who dearly enjoys all athletic sports - this in a nutshell describes Dr. D. C. Y. Moore, of South Manchester.

In his hometown, Dr. Moore is best known as a physician and also for his deep interest in sports of all kinds. Out of town, he is perhaps best known because of his connection with gun clubs, and he has quite a reputation as a sharpshooter at the traps. He was one of the prime movers in furthering the interests of the state gun club in this vicinity, and has held office in the organization for a number of years.

When baseball feeling ran so high between the Manchester and Rockville teams, in the days when the Rockvilles imported "Christy" Matthewson of the New York Nationals to the hilly city to help them beat Manchester, Dr. Moore's counsel and judgment were freely given to directing the Manchester team, much to the benefit of that nine.

Dr. Moore's full title is De Marquis De Casso Ye Rujo Moore. He was born in New Boston, Mass., July 24, 1869. He grew to early manhood at Robertsville, Conn., to which place his parents moved when he was a child. His early education was obtained in the schools of Robertsville, and at Winsted and Torrington. He completed his education at the University of New York and began the study of medicine under Dr. Walter Havens at Riverton. He remained with the doctor for three years.

He matriculated at the New York Homeopathic Medical college, from which he was graduated in 1895. He spent eighteen months studying in New York hospitals.

He was married in 1895 to Miss Ida May Quilter of New Hartford.

He is a member of Manchester Lodge of Masons, King David Lodge of Odd Fellows, the Knights of Pythias and is medical examiner of the Knights of the Maccabees.
