Biographical Note

Harvey Lee Price (1874-1951) was associated with Virginia Polytechnic Institute throughout his professional career, first as a student (B.S. 1898, M.S. 1900), followed by his extensive tenure as a faculty member in the Horticulture department (1900-1950). During those years, Price was an administrator from 1908 through 1920 and Dean of the School of Agriculture from 1920 through 1945. Price Hall, originally constructed in 1907 as Agricultural Hall, was renamed in his honor in 1949.

A descendant of early Montgomery County settlers, Harvey Lee Price had a strong avocational interest in genealogy and local history. His Outlines of Montgomery County Families has long been a valuable source for genealogists and historians. Hardback copies of the four volumes are available in the Rare Book Collection.
