about this item

The Albuquerque-born Moore recounts his life at LIFE magazine. Fresh out of college and a tour of Mexico, he did a two-year stint as a police officer in his hometown, then moved on to the Albuquerque Tribune as a rookie reporter in 1963, covering two counties’ governments, general assignments, and writing a weekly column called “Moore on the Arts.” Hired over the phone during Goldwater’s nomination at the Republican National Convention, Moore began as a stringer for LIFE magazine in New Mexico. Moving to the New York bureau in 1965, when LIFE was a coffee-table-sized, weekly magazine and the last word in photojournalism, he wrote major articles on the advent of ******, the Vietnam War, racial tensions in Watts, prison conditions in Arkansas, covered Eugene McCarthy’s campaign, directed LIFE’s coverage of the 1968 Democratic Convention, and reported on conditions in Chicago’s West Side ghetto, among other things. The peripatetic Moore later became the Los Angeles correspondent and then Chicago bureau chief in 1967. When LIFE ended weekly publication in December, 1972, he turned to free-lance writing in national magazines. Annotation ©2016 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
