Photograph of Prof. Herbert Moore, 1898, Y.H.S., possibly Yarmouth, Maine

Photograph of a man identified on the reverse as Prof. Herbert Moore, Y.H.S. '98.  A reader explains that Moore was likely the principal of Yarmouth High School, Yarmouth, Maine, in 1898.

The photograph was found with another, that of George Stewart York, who graduated from Yarmouth High School at Yarmouth, Maine, in 1898.

If you have information to share, please leave a comment for the benefit of other researchers.


  1. Herbert M Moore is listed as a teacher in the 1900 census. He was born in 1861 in Maine and was 39 in 1900. It says his father was born in NH and his mother was born in Maine. His wife is listed as Mary E., born in 1868 in Canada as were her parents. They were originally from England. They are easy to find in several censuses.

    He is also listed as Principal of Yarmouth HS 1889

  2. Thanks for this information. So he was most likely the principal when George Stewart York graduated, and his photograph made available for sharing just as all of the graduates' photos were, which is likely how I found them together.
