James Hubert Price Papers (Collection 090)

2.8 linear feet

Price (1878-1943), of Staunton, was Governor of Virginia from 1938-1942. He was a 1909 graduate of the Washington and Lee University Law School. His success in Virginia politics was notable for his not having the blessing of the Byrd Organization, a political rarity in the Old Dominion at the time. Price also served in the Virginia House of delegates and two terms as Lieutenant Governor. Most of his extensive correspondence in the collection is from his service as Governor. There are copies of many of his speeches. There is a detailed index to the Price collection in Special Collections. For other Price material see the Leroy Hodges Papers (collection 162).
