John C. Moore, professor emeritus of mathematics, passed away Jan. 1, 2016.
It was a great honor to study under Professor Moore. He was the greatest teacher I have ever met. The clarity of his exposition was astounding and gentle. The most complex difficulties melted away in his vision of mathematics within which you were welcomed as an honored guest.
Best math professor I had at Princeton. Endeared himself to his algebraic topology class by, whenever he got stuck, staring at the blackboard with his hand on this chin and saying out loud, “What am I trying to do?”
