Pat Moore attended Barnard College where she graduated with a degree in English in 1941. During the war she worked as an editor for several publications, including Popular Mechanics, as well as working for the Metropolitan Museum of Art and Random House, and later for the New York Graphic Society. Her life long passion for history led her to write a historical non-fiction account of the famous chess playing Turk, which she worked on for 35 years, and finally finished after she had become legally blind. Pat deeply loved her family and worldwide circle of friends. She had a special intuitive sense about helping others in times of need. She will be remembered by all that met her for her keen mind, her love of good conversation and her deep curiosity about life. Pat touched many people throughout the course of her long life and all will miss her sparkling presence. A memorial service will be held for Pat on Tuesday May 4th at 11am at First United Methodist Church in Greenwich, CT.
