Harry Polunsky?

Does anyone know anything about Harry Polunsky, grocer of San Angelo, Texas?

He died in 1972. He was a contributing editor of early editions of the ACBL Encyclopedia of Bridge. His entry in the Encyclopedia said that he had one of the largest private collections of books on playing cards and games.

I have a number of books with his stamp in them. One says merely "Harry Polunsky, 1922 N. Parkway, San Angelo, Texas." Another suggests that he dealt in books under the name Harry's: "First and early edition bridge and Whist Books, Harry's...San Angelo, Texas."

I wonder whether he was a collector or a collector and a dealer. I also wonder what might have happened to his collection and stock. Lastly, was he a serious bridge player? I don't recall the name.
