Price’s

George Fetherston Price (c.1867-1940) was an Irishman, a Classicist who had been a Scholar and Gold Medallist at TCD. Blessed with “a sense of humour and a pungent wit”, he was also a passionate angler, a pastime which he encouraged amongst his pupils. It was claimed that “a day in his company was a joy forever”. One of the original 1908 Boarding Housemasters and the first Housemaster of Price's, he retired in 1927 to Stoke Trister in Dorset, where he died after a long illness on the 3rd of April 1940.
