This article is the autobiography of Keith L. Moore, PhD, DSc, FIAC, FRSM, Professor Emeritus of Anatomy and Cell Biology at the Faculty of Medicine, University of Toronto. It is our great pleasure to have the autobiography of a pioneer of clinical anatomy in our journal, IJAV. I (Tunali S.) have been first acquainted with Dr. Moore’s great work during my intership in the medical school. Unfortunately, Clinically Oriented Anatomy was not widely accessible in Turkey when I was having my anatomy courses. This late acquaintance (better than never) left an indelible impression on my career. It was amazing to see that complicated anatomical information was put into service in an easy to understand way. Undoubtedly, Dr. Moore had influenced my career choice, even he may not be aware of it. As countless anatomists worldwide, I continually refer his books and suggest them to my students. It is a great honor to publish this article as it may be regarded as a debt of gratitude. Please enjoy the autobiography of Dr. Moore. Keith L. Moore was born on October 5th, 1925 in Brantford, Ontario, Canada. He worked for over 60 years as a Clinical Anatomist. His books are of major references in the area of anatomy and embryology for medical students and anatomists alike.
