WILLIAM OLIVER (BILL) MOORE (1935-)

Moore was born in Iredell County. He graduated from the NCSU School of Design in 1959 with a BA in Architecture plus coursework in City Planning from UNC-Chapel Hill. He worked for Charles Sappenfield's private practice in Raleigh. When Sappenfield moved to Asheville, Moore moved as well. He left in 1964 to work with Bert King. In January 1966, he opened his own office and had various partners over the years. He retired in 2008.
