Hide Profile

Joseph Hampton Moore was a congressional representative for seven terms from 1906 to 1920 and mayor of Philadelphia for two nonconsecutive terms in 1920 and 1932. While in these positions, Moore worked steadfastly to serve his party and constituents. His time serving the public was supplemented by his deep-rooted interest in waterways and shipping and he was president of the Atlantic Deeper Waterways Association for forty years. In addition, Moore was a founding member of the Five O'clock Club and member and officer of several other clubs and organizations. Much of the rest of his time was spent attending social functions. Moore's forty years in local and national politics spanned the 1890s through the 1930s.
