Berry Family Collection

1 cubic foot

The Berry family is a Lufkin family that once owned the locally-known Berry Dairy. This collection of materials related to the Berry family primarily consists of genealogical research and books regarding the Berry family and their ancestors. There is also a yearbook from Lufkin High School for the year 1954. Also included are magazines published or collected by members of the Berry family. Of particular note is a copy of a first edition of the first issue of True West magazine, started by Berry relative Joe Small in Austin, Texas in 1953. True West is currently the oldest continuously-published magazine about the American West in the world.
