Nathan Moore was a prominent attorney working for the Chicago firm of Wilson, Moore & McIlvaine. Moore was one of the founders of Oak Park's First Presbyterian Church and spearheaded fundraising efforts for construction of their first church building on Lake Street. When the congregation outgrew this structure in 1900, Moore again became chairman of the building committee. Moore was the author of two published religious books, one of which, "Theory of Evolution--An Inquiry," was widely used in seminaries. Moore was also an early member of the Oak Park school board and was president of the high school board from 1906-07.
