History

A.B.B. Moore was President of Victoria University, 1950-1970, and also a prominent United Church minister. Born in Keswick Ridge, New Brunswick in 1906, the son of a Congregationalist minister, he grew up in The Eastern Townships in Quebec, before attending McGill University (B.A. 1927). After earning a B.D. (1930) from United Theological College in Montreal, Moore completed his graduate studies at Oxford. In 1933 he married Margaret Price; they celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary in 2003, before her death later that year. Moore served as a minister in Quebec, Ontario, Saskatchewan, and Pennsylvania before becoming Principal of, Professor of Theology at, St. Andrew's College at the University of Saskatchewan, 1946-1950. A.B.B. Moore's twenty year tenure as President at Victoria University was marked by his vision as a builder of campus resources and for his involvement in the formation of the Toronto School of Theology. The same year Moore retired from the University, he was elected Moderator of the United Church of Canada; prior to that he had been co-chair of the commission to form a union between the United and Anglican Churches. In 1977 Moore began a three year term as Chancellor of the University of Toronto. While in "retirement" he continued to be active in educational and religious affairs until his death in 2004.
