A treasure trove of Ruess material at U. of U. library
On his death at age 98 in 2007, Waldo Ruess, Everett’s older brother, donated his papers, more than 78 boxes of family papers, photographs, journals and art to the University of Utah J. Willard Marriott Library. It’s a rare gathering of material, says archivist Elizabeth Rogers, who spent a year organizing the collection. “I have to admit, I was obsessed,” she says. “I read almost everything. This is really one of a kind. And it’s not just Everett. This family was the 20th century.”
