Abstract

UBVRI optical and JK IR photometry and radical velocities are presented for a sample of 13 field RR Lyrae stars with metallicities ranging from metal-rich to metal-poor. These stars include 11 ab-type variables, SW And, RR Cet, SU Dra, Rx Eri, RR Gem, RR Leo, TT Lyn, AV Peg, AR Per, TU UMa, and UU Vir, and two c-type variables, TV Boo and T Sex. Light, color, and radial velocity curves of these RR Lyrae stars are also presented in the paper.
