Renowned Inventor Enjoys Billiards


Billiards anyone?
Recently retired Ann Arbor'
city councilman and University
professor of electrical engineering
Arthur D. Moore might accept the
challenge and what's more he'd
probably win.
The 62-year-old, nationally
known inventor of Fluid Mapping,
a process for picturing' electrical
forces on a slab of dental stone
stained with permanganate, has
played such "billiard greats" as
Willie Hoppe and Charlie Peter-
"The mechanics of billiards are
too complicated even for today's
mathematics," he laughed.
Rides Bicycle
A big, deep-voiced man, Prof.
Moore awakes each morniig
about four. An hour and a half
later he's on his way to class -
on a bicycle. "Been riding a bi-
cycle for years. A car is too much
trouble up here," he chuckled.
Prof. Moore has been pedaling
to class here as a faculty member
for 41 years.
He was graduated from Union-
town, Pa., High School in 1911.
Four years later he received his
Bachelor of Science degree in
electrical engineering from the
Carnegie Institute of Technology.
Comes to 'U,
He worked at the Westinghouse
Electric Corporation before com-
ing to the University in 1916. That
year he joined the Electrical En-
gineering staff and has been here
ever since.
Prof. Moore was promoted to
. professor in 1931. He estimates
that during his teaching career
he has faced more than 2000
In 1948, he began experiment-
ing with his now famous Fluid
Mapping process.
Several engineering textbooks
have made use of his fluid
"maps," which illustrate patterns
of electrical force.
He did not patent the process.
"I feel the process,should be with-
out restriction enabling more peo-
ple to benefit from it," he said.
Builds Home
Prof. Moore designed and
helped to build his own home. "I

. . . retired councilman

did all the electrical wiring my-
self and had professionals do the
masonry," he said with a touch'
of pride in his voice.
Ann Arbor alderman for 17
years, Prof. Moore's former col-
leagues presented him a gavel en-
graved with the words "Dean of
the Council" last month. His is the
longest known record of continu-
ous service by an elected official
in city history.
While on the council, Prof.
Moore helped bring voting ma-
chines to Ann Arbor. He also
paved the way for the installation
of parking meters and did a great
deal toward improving Ann Ar-
bor's parking facilities.
Serves on Committees.,
He served on many council com-
mittees and was chairman of
committees for the budget, ordi-
nance, urban' renewal and ordi-
nance codification. He was coun-
cil president from April 1955 to
April 1956.
Ann Arbor Kiwanis honored
him for public service by the pre-
sentation of a one year honorary
membership for 1957.
While a student, Prof. Moore
was active in Sigma Alpha Epsi-
lon. As a graduate and faculty
member he was a member of Sig-
ma Rho Tau, Vulcans, Triangles,
Phi Eta Sigma, Phi Kappa Phi,
Sigma Xi and Eta Kappa Nu. He
has been president of the Uni-

versity Club, Quadrangle and the
Science Research Club.
Listed in "Who's Who"
He believes his six years as na-
tional president of Tau Beta Pi
National Honorary Engineering
Society put him in "Who's Who
in America?" For his invention
and general interest in science he
is listed in "American Men of
Prof. Moore has written several
books and articles. Among them
are "Fundamentals of Electrical
Design," "Heat Transfer Notes for
Electrical Engineering," "The Me-
chanics of Billiards, and Analysis
of Willie Hoppe's Stroke" and
"What is an Engineer Worth To-
He sang in the bass section of
the Episcopalian Choir for years.
He and Mrs. Moore have contri-
buted to the foreign student's ef-
fort through their promotion of
International Night a few years
The Moores have three children
and five grandchildren.
If anyone wishes to locate Pro-
fessor Moore, he can be found
each noon in the University Club
-playing billiards.

The laws that govern plural words
I think are strictly for the birds.
If goose in plural comes out geese
Why are not two of moose then meese V
If two of mouse comes out as mice
Should not the plural house be hice?
If we say he, and his, and him
Then why not she, and shis, and shim?
No wonder kids flunk out of schools
... English doesn't follow rules!
