The Miller: Bob Moore
“I owe everything to my wife, Charlee” says Bob Moore. “Back when we were just starting our family in the 1950s, she got some books by Adelle Davis, Gayelord Hauser, J.I. Rodale, Jethro Kloss”—mid-century America’s health and nutrition writers—and she got into whole grains. Moore was not a health nut; he was a smoker. “But I didn’t argue with wife about the wonderful bread she was baking.”
From there, the couple’s whole-grain habit snowballed. Moore picked up a book at the library: John Goffe’s Mill, by George Woodbury, which chronicles the restoration of an old gristmill.

“If this guy could do it,” said Moore, “so could I.”
