The author mentions that Mr. Reaugh has been in Dallas for 38 years. Mr. Reaugh moved to Oak Cliff in 1890, so that would make this article 1928, but elsewhere she mentions that El Sibil was recently built. El Sibil was built in 1929. The article mentions the guitarist Dejanon as having influenced Mr. Reaugh. The late Verlena Bush believed that Dejanon was Django Reinhardt, but there is little evidence to support that claim.

Unknown. Frank Reaugh Off Again With Group of Young Artists on Sketching Tour. No publication (one of the Dallas papers), no date, but apparently 1937. The story indicates that the Cicada was built 17 years previously. The Cicada was built in 1920.

Unknown. Frank Reaugh Will Leave on Annual West Texas Tour Monday in 1917 Model Car. No publication, no date, but 1920s. The story is a little misleading.

The Cicada was last used in 1933. This sketch trip included Veale Station, mentioned in one of the letters printed in this book, but has not yet been dated.

Unknown. Exhibit [one word] Thursday. No date, but probably 1933. A lone one-column article announcing an art exhibition opening in Fort Worth. Artists represented include Mr. Reaugh.

Unknown. Paintings of Nine Dallas Artists Shown at Sulphur Springs. No date, but possibly 1933. Three paragraph newspaper article that mentions Frank Reaugh, Charles Cusack, E.G. Eisenlohr, Reveau Bassett, Olin Travis, Jessiejo Eckford, Kathryne Hall Travis, Alexandre Hogue, John Douglass, and Frank Klepper.

Works Project Administration. Texas: A Guide to the Lone Star State. New York: Hastings House, 1940. 718 pp. Page 145 contains a reference to Frank Reaugh and some of his friends and students as follows, Others similarly influenced [by impressionism] have been Frank Reaugh, sometimes called the dean of American painters, whose paintings are principally cattle and ranch cenes; José Arpá, Spanish born, who came to San Antonio by way of Mexico and reveled in picturing hot sunshine; E.G. Eisenlohr, whose technique of broad brush strokes or bold palette knife is often expressed in landscapes; Hale Bolton, Olive [Olin] Travis, Reveau Bassett, and Frank Klepper. The reference to dean of American painters is an obvious misprint. Reaugh was often called the dean of Texas painters.
