  1. The Runquist Brothers were named Albert and Arthur. The article (second sentence) mentions an ‘Alfred’ Runquist.

  2. This guide describes the Depression Era art of the 1937 University of Oregon Library now called Knight Library. It includes works by about 18 artists including the Runquist brothers.
