Bell, David; Reed, Stan
Dr. Bessie Boehm Moore has been a major contributor to library advancement and economics education in Arkansas and throughout the United States. She began her career as a first grade teacher at the age of 14. As one of the first county supervisors in Arkansas, she became alarmed at the paucity of library materials available for student use and succeeded in obtaining county government funds for the purchase of library books. Dr. Moore served on the Arkansas Library Commission for 38 years. As the state supervisor for elementary education, she became committed to economics education. She has been awarded numerous honors, including Arkansas Woman of the Year and honorary Doctor of Laws. (LP)
