Brain Snacks: Tasty Tidbits of Knowledge

Moore was a well-known baseball fanatic. She often mentions baseball in her poems and even threw the first pitch for the Yankees in the 1968 season. (source)

For four years Moore was editor of The Dial, an American journal that published writers such as Sherwood Anderson, Djuna Barnes, E.E. Cummings, and Ezra Pound. (source)

In her later years, Moore took to wearing a tricorn hat (like a pirate's hat) and cape at public events. (source)

Philadelphia's Rosenbach Museum and Library has recreated Moore's living room from her Greenwich Village apartment, with all its contents just as she left them. (source)
