Named in honor of Mrs. Hally Bryan Perry, honorary life
member of the Association and justly revered patron of Texas
history, the 1958 book auction was a memorable success. Although

bidding was brisk. A final audit revealed an income of $1,oo5.6o,
one of the highest figures in the history of the book auction.
