Abstract:

These papers, dating from Moore's tenure at the Museum, consist primarily of correspondence regarding his very wide range of concurrent interests and activities. While they cover a span of only four years, they seem to touch on every aspect of his long life's work. The correspondence is primarily socially and professionally oriented, giving evidence of a complex network of social, political, and professional contacts. Charles Moore was made director of the Museum largely because of his position as president of the City Plan and Improvement Commission and his reputation as a man of influence, at a time when the Detroit Museum of Art was seeking a new location and a more central role in the city's life. Not surprisingly, few of these papers show a daily concern for the museum, and the researcher looking for Detroit Museum of Art activities from 1914-17 will find the records of Clyde H. Burroughs, administrative secretary, more to the point. Other records relating to Charles Moore can be found at the Detroit Public Library/Burton Historical Collections, including news clippings, some correspondence and many of Moore's books. The Bentley Library at the University of Michigan has 1 foot of correspondence from 1901-1940 and 5 diaries on 1899-1903. These include his impressions while clerk for the Senate, letters from Daniel Burnham, Gari Melchers, Alexander Calder and others.
