In Memoriam — Donald Moore

  May 2010

Dr. Donald Moore Sr., former associate professor of pathology, died Dec. 16 at age 93.

A specialist in malaria, he taught and conducted research at UT Southwestern from 1955 until his retirement in 1988. He also served as associate director of the microbiology laboratory at Parkland Memorial Hospital.

“He had an encyclopedic knowledge of his field, and he taught it with great skill,” said Dr. Frederick Bonte, clinical professor of radiology and former dean of UT Southwestern Medical School. “He loved his field and was regarded as a uniquely valuable member of the faculty.”

Dr. Moore was born in York, Neb. A graduate of Hastings College, he earned his doctoral degree in parasitology at Rice University and his master’s in zoology at the University of Nebraska.

Dr. Moore also was active in the Boy Scouts of America, St. Luke’s Episcopal Church and the Anglican School of Theology.
