Also see . . . Claude Moore, M.D. (1892–1991). “Moore took two years of pre-medical courses at Roanoke College, then crossed the Blue Ridge to Charlottesville where he enrolled at UVa in 1912. That fall, he joined the football team—against the advice of some of his professors—and successfully balanced academics, athletics, and a Pathology Department assistantship for the next four years. These accomplishments were a source of continuing pride to him, along with the 1915 season victory over Yale.” (Submitted on July 4, 2008.)
