Jean Jessop Hervey bequeathed $80 million to the San Diego Foundation. She attached no stipulations to the gift. Her late husband, James Edgar Hervey, a lawyer, had established a trust with the money he made as one of the original investors in Price Club. Shortly after his death, the business was purchased and the value of the investment soared. The Foundation made its first grant from the donation: $5-million for a new library in Point Loma to replace the one where Mrs. Hervey used to spend every Tuesday night reading with her children.
