Dr. Ruth Ann Musick (September 17, 1897-July 2, 1974) came to Fairmont State in 1946 and served until her retirement in 1967.

In addition to being Professor of English, she was a noted West Virginia folklorist and is best remembered for the following collections of folk tales: The Telltale Lilac Bush (1965), Green Hills of Magic (1970), and Coffin Hollow (1977).

In July 1980, the West Virginia Board of Regents designated the library at the main campus as the Ruth Ann Musick Library.
