Fanny Ratchford was associated with the rare book libraries of the University of Texas from 1919 until her retirement in 1957, and especially with the John Henry Wrenn Library. The Wrenn collection includes nearly 100 examples of Thomas J. Wise's spurious 19th century pamphlets. John Carter exposed these forgeries in the book he published with Graham Pollard in 1934, An enquiry into the nature of certain nineteenth century pamphlets. Ratchford was the editor of the Letters of Thomas J. Wise to John Henry Wrenn: a further inquiry into the guilt of certain nineteenth century forgers (1944).
