Scope and Content Note

This collection represents Richard A. Moore’s work as a landscape architect while he was based in Raleigh, North Carolina from 1959-1967. Many of the projects are post offices, federal buildings, and court houses, as well as projects such as the Fayetteville Market Square, Lincoln County General Hospital, and the Eastern North Carolina School for the Deaf. Newly added (unprocessed) materials include landscape architecture projects from Moore's years working in Hawaii.

Biographical Note

Born in 1930, Richard A. Moore received his Masters in Landscape Architecture degree from the University of Oregon in 1957. Moore took up a landscape architecture practice in Raleigh, North Carolina, where he operated through his firm, Megatech Incorporated. He was also appointed Associate Professor and Head of Landscape Architecture in 1962-1967 at North Carolina State University's School of Design. Moore often worked with colleague Lewis Clarke on landscape architecture projects. In 1967, Moore took a leave of absence from the School of Design and began to practice in Hawaii. He formally resigned from the faculty of the School of Design in August, 1968 and moved on to Honolulu, Hawaii, to work with Eckbo, Dean, Austin & Williams.
