Fred R. Moore (1857-1943) was a self-made man. He was born near Richmond, Virginia to parents who were enslaved. The family moved to Washington, D.C. when he was an infant. Moore served as a confidential messenger for twenty-two years to five Secretaries of the Treasury during the Grant, Hayes, Arthur, and Cleveland administrations. He married Ida Lawrence in 1879, and they had eighteen children. In the late 1880s, their family moved to New York, where Moore took a job at the Western National Bank. After resigning in 1905, he became a Deputy Collector of Internal Revenue.
