Biography from American Eagle Fine Art:
Gertrude M.F. Moir was born in Philadelphia in 1896 and was educated there in music and art. She met her future husband, John Troup Moir, Jr., while attending Cornell University.  After earning an MEd degree at the University of Hawaii in 1945, Mrs. Moir was a teacher, then Principal at Honokohua School (1953-1957) and Iao School (1957-1961) on Maui.  She was also a painter whose works sold at galleries in Hawaii and on the Mainland and appeared in local and national publications.  Some are in the 1979 book Hawaii’s Flowers, which can be found in this library’s Hawaiian Collection (SB407 .M84).

Mrs. Moir was a member of many educational, cultural, historical and social organizations on Maui and in the state and was a co-founder of the Maui County Library.  She was a delegate to the White House Education Conference on Counseling and to Indonesia’s Cultural Program at the Asian-African Conference in 1965.  She participated in the U.S. People-to-People Program that sent 100,000 books to Western Samoa and she was a guest at that country’s independence celebration in 1962.

During World War II, Mrs. Moir served in many capacities.  She was a member of: the committee on planning and manning observations stations; the evacuation planning committee; and the Honolulu survey for the Office of Price Administration.  She was a first aid instructor for The American Red Cross (1941-1945), and her MEd thesis at the University of Hawaii resulted in the standardization of American Red Cross first aid tests.  A copy of the thesis is in this library’s Hawaiian Collection (HAWN LB5 .H3 no.78.)
