Collection Historical Note

Rudolph "Rudi" Fuchs began teaching at North Texas State Teachers College  in Denton in 1930 while also running an art studio known as Kendolph Terrace. In 1938 Rudi traveled to Europe where he studied in Paris, England, Germany, and Sweden. Both Rudi and his partner Kenneth served in WWII after its outbreak, Rudi working as a translator due to his fluency in German before returning once again to Denton. Rudi created his first woven Christmas Card in 1957 and continued on for decades, mailing annual tapestry cards to what became over 500 names. Rudi also taught weaving, the only professor to do so, at North Texas State University until his retirement in 1972.
