A Tribute to Miss
Mr. Lynn Shaw
Mr. Lynn Shaw and
Miss Dorothy Moore
the dedication of the
James K. Polk -
James C. Jones
Miss Dorothy Moore was my high-school
history teacher. In over 40 years of teaching, she was hundreds of
other students' history teacher also; but somehow, I think of her
only as being my history teacher. Miss Moore had a personal bonding
with her students.
Over the years since high school, anytime a question arose that
concerned Dancyville or the Dancyville area, Miss Moore was the
final word and ultimate authority to be consulted.
When the Historical Society began to compile information on the
various communities in Haywood
County, the one community that needed no working up was Dancyville.
Miss Moore had a lifetime of information
on Dancyville that she was willing to share with the Historical
Society. As a person leads his life, there are people we meet who
have the same interests. No matter when I last talked with Miss
Moore, it always seemed to me that we were picking up the same
conversation over and over again; but with something new added that
she would be able to explain or point out, either telling about a
person or remembering a landmark not talked about previously.
Now, be it resolved that the Haywood County Historical Society
grieves the loss of our colleague and wishes to spread upon the
minutes of our Society, our sincere sense of loss and deepest
condolences to Miss Moore's family.
Be it further resolved that Miss Moore served with distinction on
many committees that added to our Historical Society and to our
Haywood County Museum. Furthermore, her lifelong interest in history
affected the scholarship and study that the Historical Society has
undertaken to discover the true history of Haywood County and its
people. It is the overwhelming belief of this Society that her like
will not be seen again.

Haywood County Historical Society
