is a sense of pride in their past and in what their ancestors achieved. As
he put it so often when speaking about the heritage left by Texas pio-
neers: "They cut the brush for us." Mr. Moore was himself a pioneer-
a pioneer of ideas-a man who saw opportunities and helped others to
see and achieve them. His vision carried him out ahead of the rest. He
truly cut the brush for us.
Only a few weeks before he died Mr. Moore was working on the epi-
gram for one of the new books in his reprint series. His words stand as
a monument to his wisdom: "Mankind derives great knowledge and
comfort from the study of history. We find in the sometimes grim
lessons of the past that men before us have persevered with dignity in
the face of problems equal to those of our time. By looking back with
care we learn how to endure, how to transcend, and how to move into
the future with courage and honor."
It is difficult for those of us who knew Fred Moore to imagine moving
into the future without him at our side, yet we will attempt to do so with
courage and honor because we know that he would expect nothing less.
