Scope and Contents of the Materials

The collection consists primarily of Ralph Price’s professional correspondence. The collection features letters exchanged between Price and WMC faculty and administration, editors, professional contacts, and national politicians. The letters deal primarily with college policies, economic theories, and critiques of scholarly publications. Also included are letters of a more personal nature, including correspondence from past students detailing their personal lives and academic successes.

The collection also contains correspondence and information regarding Price’s time as a visiting professor in India and Singapore. Additionally, drafts of Price’s speeches and scholarly publications are included.

Upon arrival, the papers were contained in one box and divided into folders that were arranged categorically. Within each folder, the papers were primarily arranged in a reverse chronological order. However, many of the papers were out of place and, as a result, many of the folders had to be reclassified. After intake, the papers were ordered by subject and then by chronology.

Collection Historical Note

Ralph Bevere Price was born on August 27, 1912 in Page, Nebraska. He attended the University of Colorado in Boulder where he received his Bachelors in History, his Masters in History-Economics, and his PhD in Economics. He and his wife, Margaret Rockwell Price, had two daughters, Pamela Gwynne and Ellen Louise.

He began his teaching career at the District School of Cherry County, Nebraska in 1933 and went on to serve as a school principal and a labor economist at several different educational institutions. He taught economics at the University of Colorado as a visiting professor before becoming a full-time professor of economics at Western Maryland College (now McDaniel College). He served as the chair of the WMC Economics Department from 1954-1977. During his time at WMC, he was also a Fulbright-Hayes Visiting Professor at the University of Singapore. He was named Professor Emeritus upon his retirement in 1977 after 23 years of service to the college, but returned to publish a variety of scholarly papers about national, international, and Indian economics, including “The New Political Economy and British Economic Policy for India,” and was instrumental in the field of economics until his death. He died in Westminster, Maryland on February 17, 1995.
