A 1979 article by George Bishop, published in the Journal of the British Astronomical Association:
Abstract: A short biography of the activities and achievements of Stephen Perry — a little-known Jesuit priest, astronomer and educator. Apart from his work as a teacher at Stonyhurst College and as Director of its Observatory, Father Perry’s main contributions were in the fields of magnetism and of solar physics. He took a leading part in two Transit of Venus expeditions and four solar eclipse expeditions, and was to sacrifice his life in the 1889 solar eclipse expedition to the Salut Isles.
