John Price

At the age of five in April 1939, his family fled Nazi Germany, eventually settling in New York City in the fall of 1940. Price first visited Salt Lake City as a geology student in 1954. He quickly realized Utah was where he wanted to be. Two years later, in June of 1956, he graduated from the University of Utah with a degree in geological engineering.
