“Gordon Moore matched scientific insight and business acumen with a genuine concern for the well-being of the natural world and the human beings who steward it. Throughout his brilliant career, he remained dedicated to developing common-sense, scientifically verifiable approaches to the challenges of our changing world. I suspect that his place on the list of Berkeley’s most celebrated and influential alumni will remain unchallenged, and I know that he is greatly missed by the members of our community who had the opportunity to spend time with him.” — Chancellor Carol T. Christ
