Moore (1870-1936, born in Fremantle, Western Australia) was an Australian politician who served in the Parliaments of Western Australian and the United Kingdom. He entered politics in 1899 when he was elected to the Municipal Council of Bunbury, and was elected mayor from 1900 to 1904. He won the Bunbury seat in the Western Australia Legislative District in 1904 and became Western Australian Premier - at the time the youngest ever and still the most inexperienced - in 1906. He placed emphasis on agricultural development and providing cheap land to settlers, policies that laid the foundations for the Wheatbelt region in Western Australia. He resigned as Premier because of his health in 1910 but stayed in the Western Australian government until 1918. He was a member of the British House of Commons from 1918 until he resigned from politics in 1932, when he became president of British Empire Steel Corporation. Signature is lightly toned. Edges of mounting paper are irregular. Otherwise in fine condition.
