Memorable Manitobans: Alice S. Price (1889-1976)

Educator.

Born at Toronto, Ontario on 21 April 1889, daughter of John and Agnes Price, she came to Winnipeg with her family in 1900 and attended Carlton School and Alexandra School. In 1910, she joined the teaching staff of the Winnipeg School Board and first taught at Dufferin School, later moving to Albert School where she also served as a critic-teacher for the nearby Central Normal School. In 1922, she was appointed the first Principal of Sir Sam Steele School, being transferred in 1935 to Alexandra School where she remained until retirement in 1949. She died at Winnipeg on 3 June 1976.
