This endowment holds the special distinction of being the first named endowment established at the King Library. Created in memory of Ruth Ann Moore, a San José State University alumna from the School of Library and Information Science, by her husband, John Moore, and her many dear friends, the endowment supports the King Library's art collection, a popular area of study and research at the library. Ruth was a book lover with a passion for learning who devoted many years of service to the King Library, namely serving as its first docent. The endowment supports the library's acquisition of a range of related art resources, including: art history books to support graduate research; books on animation and illustration techniques; materials related to current work in graphic, industrial, and interior design; and resources that represent the cutting edge of contemporary art in new media.
