1990 Hall of Fame Inductees
Name Category Class
Darrell Wayne Evans Sports 1965
Darrell Evans hit 414 home runs in his 21-year Major League Baseball career with the Atlanta Braves (‘69-‘76, ’89), San Francisco Giants (’76-’83) and Detroit Tigers (’84-’88). His breakthrough year was 1973, his first of two All-Star seasons. He hit 41 home runs for Atlanta, becoming part of the first trio (Hank Aaron, Davey Johnson) to hit 40 or more homers for the same team in the same season. He was on first base when Aaron hit his historic 715th career homer in 1974, breaking Babe Ruth’s record as the all-time home run king, a title he held for 33 years. Evans was selected to the National League All-Star team for the second time in 1983, his final year with the Giants. He won his only World Series championship in 1984, as a member of the Detroit Tigers, defeating the San Diego Padres, whose second baseman, Alan Wiggins, was another Muir grad. It marked the first time two players from the same high school played against one another in a World Series. In 1985, at age 38, he became the oldest player to lead the league in home runs and the first to hit 40 home runs in both leagues. He was the second of three players (Reggie Jackson, Alex Rodriguez) to hit 100 home runs with three different teams.

Maj. Gen. Royal N. Moore Jr. enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve in 1953. He was selected as a Naval Aviation Cadet in 1956 and began flight training in Florida.

He next served in DaNang, South Vietnam, where he was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross and Air Medal with bronze numeral 18 for flying a total of 287 combat missions. Subsequent missions brought him to El Toro Marine Air Station as Executive Officer.

General Moore was awarded the Joint Service Commendation medal and the Navy Commendation Medal for his service with Headquarters Military Assistance in Vietnam. He attended the U.S. Army Command and General Staff College at Ft. Levenworth, Kan. Squadrons under his command were awarded the 1975 Chief of Naval Operations Safety Award; the 1976 CMC Efficiency Award; and the Meritorious Unity Commendation. He personally received the Meritorious Service Medal.

He worked for the paper for 35 years, during which time he shot many famous photos, including one of Sirhan Sirhan’s mother reacting to the news that her son had been arrested for shooting Sen. Robert F. Kennedy.

In 1955 Mr. Norgord won a second-place news photography award in the international Graflex contest. He was a 1969 winner of the Forest Lawn Sweepstakes for the California Press Photographers Association; and was named Photographer of the Year in 1970 by the California Press Association.

Walter Worrill Community Service 1935
Walter Worrill was a teammate of Mack Robinson on Muir’s 1935 track team (the brother of Jackie Robinson who earned a silver medal in the 1936 Olympic Games in Berlin). He served as vice president of Armulites; a club dedicated to providing social interaction and inspire academic success among African-American students at Pasadena Junior College during the 1930s and ‘40s. Worrill spent much of his working career as a key figure in the YMCA movement, heading up several core programs at the organization’s U.S. headquarters in Chicago and in Pennsylvania, Pa.

Walter’s wife of nearly 40 years, Anna Belle, was an accomplished vocalist and ballet student, who became the first African-American to sing in the Pasadena Philharmonic Orchestra (she also sang at Jackie and Rachel Robinson’s 1946 wedding). Their eldest son, Conrad Walter Worrill, Ph.D., is a well-known activist and educator in Chicago, who served as a special field consultant to the 1995 Million-Man March in Washington, DC; and in 2001 led a 400-member delegation at the United Nations World Conference Against Racism in Durban, South Africa.
