Laura B. '33 and Francis D. Moore, M.D., '31 (1982)
The Francis R. Stanton Alumni Recognition was established last year as an annual tribute to a graduate of this School whose life and work have enriched the School and the larger community. Today we have chosen to honor two graduates of North Shore, a man and woman, each distinguished in several fields of service.
Laura Bartlett Moore, a member of the Class of 1933, has been deeply involved for many years in community service in Boston, serving as a trustee of hospitals, community houses, her church, her children's schools and her college. At the same time she was raising five children and actively participating in local government.
Dr. Francis D. Moore, our graduation speaker today, is a member of the Class of 1931. He is one of America's most renowned and respected surgeons who has spent his adult life practicing and teaching at one of the greatest teaching hospitals. He has received many honors, including the Bigelow Medal of the Boston Surgical Society, the Lister Medal of Royal College of Surgeons, the Samuel D. Gross Medal for Distinguished Scientific Achievement, and the Ellen Browning Scripps Society Medal of the Scripps Memorial Hospitals Foundation.
North Shore is proud to claim as alumni these graduates who clearly exemplify distinguished service to their community. It is with great pleasure that I present the Francis R. Stanton Alumni Recognition for 1982 to Laura and Francis Moore.
