EDWARD A. "ED" PERRY
Ed A. Perry was founder, president, and security
guard (with the six-shooter on his desk) of Perry
National Bank. Mr. Perry's office, on a raised area in the
northwest corner of the bank, was separated from the bank lobby by a
marble fence with a swinging wooden gate. The gun was always
on his desk.
Mr. Perry wore his gun as he made daily visits to the
post office to retrieve money from the Federal Reserve Bank in
Dallas. He followed the same prescribed route each day from the bank
to the post office and then back to the bank.
