Ruth Moore (born c. 1933) was a writer Archie Comics in the 1950s, while her husband Tom Moore was the primary artist. According to Tom, “She wrote stories that showed the girls’ points of view,” and gave those stories verisimilitude.[2]Originally from El Paso, they moved to Long Island in 1953 when Tom got his first Archie job. 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]

She currently lives in El Paso with her husband.
