“If there had been any less, there wouldn’t have been any Moore”




Clyde Shroyer



The author recounts the history of Moore, Oklahoma, from a highly-informed personal view. In addition to growing up in the ever-developing city, the author draws on his many years of public service in Moore as a Town Board Trustee and City Councilman to provide insider information about the development of the community. According to the author:


"The community of Moore is, especially fortunate to have been included so often, and so generously, in published events during the years since its place in the world was officially opened to white settlement.


"Most of us have witnessed some event during our lives and later read a newspaper account of that same event which caused us to realize that all witnesses viewing the same happening do not agree on what they have seen.  Perhaps that’s because we have different definitions for the word “truth”, but more likely, it’s because we watched the event from different positions—and more than that, we were influenced by our individual prejudice and back ground when we committed what we saw to our memory.  Unconsciously, even those who believe they are truthful, sometimes tell things the way they wish those things had happened rather than sticking strictly to the truth.


"This book is not about the author, but is based on the author’s memory of a very pleasant childhood, and growing up in Moore."
