Born: 12/12/1845, Died: 5/28/1903

A native of Cumberland, MD, Bruce Price was the son of William and Marian (Bruce) Price. He studied briefly at Princeton University and then apprenticed in Baltimore with Niernsee & Neilson. After studying for a short while in Europe, Price then practiced in Baltimore, establishing a short-lived (1869-1873) partnership with E. Francis Baldwin before moving to Wilkes-Barre, PA in 1873, and then New York in 1877. Once in New York, his career flourished. Perhaps his best known work involved the development of Tuxedo Park in New Jersey.

Price joined the AIA in 1871 and served on the Baltimore Chapter Executive Committee. While in Pennsylvania, he published his work through the Philadelphia Chapter AIA/T-Square Club exhibitions of the 1890s.
