A. S. Moore Collection

The A. S. Moore Collection held at Belfast Central Library reflects the personal interests of this well known Ulster journalist. The Collection consists of cuttings, manuscripts and articles which are concerned with local history (Belfast). Moore was an authority on old Belfast and wrote a series of essays on this subject. Before World War I he was better known as "Nomad" of "Nomad's Weekly". This was his brainchild and was often a caustic commentary on life in Belfast. In 1926 he became the linen correspondent of the "Belfast News Letter". At the time of his death (November 1961) he was ninety-two and still the linen correspondent of "Linens and Domestics" - a New York magazine.
