Clifford Herschel Moore (1866–1931) was an American Latin scholar.

Moore was born in Sudbury, Massachusetts, and educated at Harvard (A.B., 1889) and in Europe at Munich (Ph.D., 1897). He taught classics in California (1889–92) and Massachusetts, at Phillips Academy in Andover (1892–94).

Moore edited Frederic de Forest Allen's 1899 edition of Euripides' Medea and his 1902 edition Horace's Odes and Epodes (1902), and wrote the textbooks A First Latin Book (1903) and The Elements of Latin (1906).
