This led to the establishment of the United States and Canadian Academy of Pathology (USCAP) as an organizational entity. Dr. More played an important guiding role in these developments.

The Queen’s University Department of Pathology recognized his contributions by dedicating a modernized library in his name. His retirement was spent raising beef cattle.
