Douglas Moore
Douglas Moore is an acclaimed American composer, teacher, and author. Born in Cutchogue, NY he attended the Hotchkiss School before earning two degrees from Yale University where he studied with Horatio Parker. He served as a lieutenant in the Navy before moving to Paris to study composition under Nadia Boulanger, Vincent d’Indy, and Ernest Bloch.

His debut as a composer and conductor came in 1923 when he conducted his Four Museum Pieces with the Cleveland Orchestra. It won him a Pulitzer Traveling Fellowship which he used to travel back to Europe to continue study with Boulanger. A few years later he began teaching music at Columbia University where he remained until his retirement in 1962. He was a popular teacher who often included studies of contemporary music. Outside the realm of classical music, Moore also wrote popular songs in collaboration with John Jacob Niles and childhood friend Archibald MacLeish. He wrote two books on music Listening to Music and From Madrigal to Modern Music.

Moore was revered in his Long Island hometown of Cutchogue. He died in the Eastern Long Island Hospital in the neighboring village of Greenport, Long Island in 1969.
