The Texas State Library and Archives extends its grateful thanks to Susan Jean Dickey, whose thoroughly researched doctoral dissertation, F. E. and Oscar Ruffini: Texas architects, 1877-1917, Texas Tech University, 1993, was the primary source of information for the written text of this web exhibition on the Ruffinis.

The Texas State Library and Archives also thanks Sharon Boon, our spring semester intern from the University of North Texas, who developed this exhibit.
