Caption: Edward Mott Moore (1814-1902) was a Rochester physician who became the President of the Rochester Park Commission and was known as the "Father of the Rochester Park System."

In addition to his contributions as a talented and dedicated physician, Dr. Moore played a leadership role in developing Rochester's park system and in organizing a summer hospital for infants. He was also the first president of the local Red Cross chapter.

The memorial was a gift to the City of Rochester from James G. Cutler, a former Rochester mayor, and was accepted by a resolution passed on August 21, 1926. The base was designed by Lawrence G. White of the architectural firm of McKim, Mead & White.
