Reissue of a paper read before the American Surgical Association in 1874 and published in the society's journal for that
year. Moore was a scholar and surgeon, a specialist in orthopedics, and one of the bearded lions of Rochester, New York,
where he acquired the appellative, "Father of the Rochester Park System." In appreciation of his service to the parks
department, the mayor commissioned a bronze statue designed in part by Lawrence G. White of McKim, Mead & White.
