The Beverly Gray Mystery Stories, comprising 26 novels published between 1934 and 1955, were written by Clair Blank, pen name of Clarissa Mabel Blank Moyer. The series began as a series of school stories, and followed Beverly's progress through college, her various romances, and a career as a reporter before becoming strictly a mystery series.

Beverly is portrayed as an extraordinarily determined individual, with "a driving ambition in her heart that would not let her idle her life away." Across 26 books, she leads "such a life of adventure as would tax the resources of any soap opera heroine".

The Beverly Gray series was published in the United States from 1934 to 1955. Four publishers were responsible for the series output during this time: A. L. Burt (1934-1937), Blue Ribbon Books (who bought out Burt, 1937-1938), Grosset & Dunlap (1938-1954) and McLoughlin Bros. (1955). When the series went to Grosset & Dunlap, volume 6, Beverly Gray at the World's Fair, was dropped when the publisher felt it would date the book.
