Bona Fide Purchases Without Notice: There were two cases, First Federal Savings and Loan Ass'n v. Dearth' and Harris v. Buchignani, decided during the year which concerned the title acquired by a purchaser of real property without actual notice of an unrecorded interest. The first of the above cases concerned a purchaser from the heir of the deceased record owner, and the second concerned a purchaser from a record owner who had previously executed a contract of sale which was not recorded. Both cases originated in Memphis.
