Clarence B. Moore (1852-1936) was a wealthy amateur archaeologist from Philadelphia. He excavated archeological sites (mostly burial mounds) on or near the shores of rivers of the American southeast, which he accessed with his steam-powered paddleboat, the Gopher of Philadelphia. Moore participated in over 850 excavations between 1891-1918, which he reported on in the Journal of the Academy of Natural Sciences of Philadelphia.
