Biographical NoteReturn to Top
Charles Cornell Moore was born on February 3, 1880 at Fort Washakie, Wyoming, the son of Nevada Cornell and James Moore, who operated the trading post at Fort Washakie. Charles had three siblings who survived to adulthood, James K., Annie B. and Mary Virginia. The Moore family moved to California around 1890 where Charles attended public school. He eventually became a lawyer, but practiced only briefly before returning to Wyoming and ranch life in 1907, opening his first Rocky Mountain Boys Camp, where he guided pack trips into the wilderness areas of Yellowstone Park. He later purchased land near Dubois, Wyoming and established the C-M Dude Ranch. He continued running the dude ranch until his retirement to California in 1952. Selling the C-M Dude Ranch in 1952, Charles and his wife retired to California, returning to the ranch each summer. Charles Moore died in October of 1971 at the age of 91.
