Before the Olympic year of 1920, Ed Moore had never sat in a shell. And a few weeks before the 1920 Olympic Trials, he was only a junior varsity oarsman for the Naval Academy. But by sheer hard work, he improved rapidly and was moved to the big boat for the Henley Regatta. Moore so impressed the midshipmen that he was elected captain of the crew team for the following year He also played football at Annapolis before his 1921 graduation. Ed Moore was a career naval officer who retired as a rear admiral in 1945. First, though, he served with valor in World War II, being the chief of staff to the commander of the Pacific Task Force. For his efforts he was awarded the Legion of Merit and two Presidential Unit Citations.
