The Formby Research Fellowships are supported by a generous endowment from Sharleen Formby Rhoads in memory of her late husband Marshall Formby.  The Formby family have been long time supporters of Texas Tech University and the Southwest Collection/Special Collections Library.  Their generosity enables scholars to conduct extended and detailed research in the library’s unique collections.
