Born in Boscobel, Wisconsin, to George G. and Nora (Murley) Price (1879-1964). In 1916, he moved to Battle Creek, Michigan. There he was raised until attending Albion College for one year. He transferred to Oberlin College for his last three years of undergraduate education and received a degree in economics in 1937. He later obtained a law degree from the University of Michigan in 1940. After passing the bar, Price worked in New York City at a large law firm before volunteering for military service in the United States Army during World War Two. He served there until being discharged in January 1946. He went on to establish a successful law practice in Battle Creek, Michigan, and continued until retiring. His last residence was with his wife, Grace, in Holland, Michigan. He passed away in 1994. His collection contains letters written to his parents while attending Oberlin College and serving in the military; correspondence with his first wife, Mary (unknown last name), and family members; correspondence from his brother, Harold, to his mother; biographical information created by his second wife, Grace; military documents; photographs of his time in the China-Burma-Indochina area during the war; a few pages of a diary; biographical information on his father and mother; and biographical information on his brother, Harold, and his death in 1945.
