Meet the Author

Clement Clarke Moore was born on July 15, 1779 in New York City. His father was the head of the Episcopal Diocese of New York and the president of Columbia College.

Clement received a B.A. and M.A. from Columbia College in 1798. One of his earliest writings was a pro-Federalist pamphlet attacking the religious views of Thomas Jefferson before the 1804 election.

In 1820, Moore helped form Trinity Church and gave his apple orchard, 66 acres to the General Theological Seminary, then became professor of Biblical Learning there until 1850.

He was on the board of the New York Institute for the Blind from 1840 to 1850, and though he was a Northerner, he was pro-slavery.

"A Visit from St. Nicholas" was published in the Troy, New York Sentinel on December 23, 1823 anonymously. He did not acknowledge writing it until 1844, not wishing to be connected with something so unscholarly. It is this poem however, that helped create the modern image of Santa Claus.

Moore was married to Catharine Elizabeth Taylor and they had several children. He died on July 10, 1863, at his summer residence in Newport, Rhode Island, at the age of 83. He was buried in Newport, but in 1899, moved to Trinity Church Cemetery in New York.
