Biographical Sketch

Lubbock native Richard B. Ferrier, FAIA, took a degree at Texas Tech University and one in art from University of Dallas. He worked as an architect in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex and taught at the University of Texas Arlington, where he served as associate dean from 1985-1995. Ferrier wrote the history of architecture for the Boy Scouts of America merit badge book and was noted for his landscape drawings and watercolors. He was a consultant and participated for years as critic in the design charrettes at the Prairie View A and M School of Architecture.

As a musician, 'Dic" Ferrier replaced John Denver as singer in a Lubbock band and was tapped to play guitar behind J. Frank Wilson and the Cavaliers on “Last Kiss” (uncredited and unpaid). He later recorded with the alt-Country groups RBF and Corduroy Cowboy Company as a singer-songwriter, working in what he called the “progressive country” genre and appreciated particularly for his satire abdout Dallas district attorney Henry Wade's passion for arresting marijuana smokers. Born March 29, 1944, he was mourned by students, colleagues, fans, and family at his death from cancer on August 5, 2010.

Scope and Content

This collection contains various formats of recordings from the personal collection of Richard Ferrier. There are studio recordings as well as live performances, programs recorded from the radio and TV, and also other artists' music. The recordings include Beta Tape, 4-, 5-, 7-, and 10-inch tape reels, cassette tapes, compact discs, 45 rpm records, and transcription discs.

R. B. Ferrier's collection is organized into formats of recordings and then by date, if specified. Each item has a distinct ID number, and if a recording had papers or track listings that went along with it, they have been separated and put in a folder corresponding to the box number. This folder is in the general paper and track listings boxes of the Crossroads archive. Note also that audio reels and cassettes providing the soundtracks to Ferrier's Super 8 sound films are stored in Box 1.

A third group of materials was donated in 2018, and the material was added at the end of each sequence rather than totally re-processing the papers. Overall, the collection is in good condition and is part of the Crossroads of Music archive.
