From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

George Henry Moore (1823–1892) was an American historical writer and librarian. He removed in 1839 to New York City and in 1843 graduated at New York University. Before leaving college he had become connected with the New-York Historical Society, as an assistant to his father, Jacob Bailey Moore, the librarian, and in 1849 succeeded him as its librarian. In this position he remained until 1872, when, on the opening of the Lenox Library (now a part of the New York Public Library), he became its first superintendent. Here he remained until his death. He was a frequent contributor to historical magazines and to the proceedings of historical societies. He was a brother of Frank Moore. Among his best-known works are:
