Known as "Mr Naperville", he developed many subdivisions in contributioning to Naperville's exponential growth from the 1940s until his retirement in 1993.  These are so many of the houses, neighborhoods, and subdivisions where we live in Naperville.

Harold Moser’s nephew, Mr. Paul Lehman, became the new owner of Macom, Inc. when Moser retired. This evening, Mr Lehman donated Moser’s archives to Naper Settlement represented by Chistine McNulty.

Dr. Michael Ebner gave a talk about Moser's place in Naperville's history. Dr. Ebner is a Professor of American History Emeritus at Lake Forest College, and holds Harold Moser in “very high regard as a transformative force”.

After the presentation, people stayed to look at the items and socialize.
