Paul Harold Moore, M.D.

Paul H. Moore was born May 11, 1927, at home in rural Winston County, Mississippi. He is the youngest of ten children born to Mr. and Mrs. Dempsey C. Moore.

A thirty-three year resident of Pascagoula, Dr. Moore is married to the former Jean Mauldin (BA '52) of Waynesboro, Mississippi. They have two children, Hal (MD '76) and Bill (BS '82), and six grandchildren.

After graduating from Louisville High School in 1944, Dr. Moore spent 18 months in the US Army. He returned to Mississippi and attended East Central Junior College where he played basketball. Dr. Moore completed his bachelor's degree at the University of Southern Mississippi in 1949, after which he returned to Louisville High School to teach science and coach football, basketball, and baseball. He received a masters degree in education from Old Miss in 1951 -- beginning a long association with the university that continues today.

Dr. Moore returned to Ole Miss in 1954 to complete two semesters of post- graduate study required to qualify for medical school, which he began in 1955 as part of the first class to begin training in the new University of Mississippi School of Medicine in Jackson. He received his MD in 1959 and completed his medical training with a rotating internship at Chatham Memorial Hospital in Savannah, Georgia, and a radiology residency at the University of Florida in Gainesville, Florida, before moving to Pascagoula in 1963 to join his brother-in-law, Dr. Sam Levi, in the practice of radiology at Singing River Hospital.

Besides his long tenure as Medical Director of the Department of Radiology, Dr. Moore belongs to numerous-professional organizations including the American Medical Association, the Mississippi State Medical Association (past-president), the American College of Radiology (Fellow & Counselor), the Mississippi Radiological Society (past-president), and the Southern Radiological Society (past-president). He is a Diplomat of the American Board of Radiology.

Perhaps one of Dr. Moore's most noted accomplishments encompasses both his profession and his dedication to education. In 1964, he was instrumental in establishing the x-ray technology program still offered through Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College. With others, Dr. Moore developed the curriculum for what was then one of the first associate degree radiology technology programs in the nation.

Locally, Dr. Moore serves on the Board of Directors for Merchants & Marine Bank. He is past-president of the Rotary Club and Jackson County Cancer Society, and has been active with the Jackson County Area Chamber of Commerce as well as the United Way of Jackson County. He is currently president of the US Navy League. He is the founding member and president of the Singing River Radiology Group, PA, which currently consists of six radiologists (including his son. Hal).
