Ruth Moore (born c. 1933) was a writer Archie Comics in the 1950s, while her husband Tom Moore was the primary artist.

They returned in 1960 and stopped working for Archie in 1961 after an editorial change.[3]

In 1966, she received her music degree from the University of Texas in El Paso, where she also received a masters in piano performance in 1991 and taught piano and harpsichord.[4]
