~Margaret Evans Price

Margaret Evans Price 1888-1973 was a
children's book illustrator and author.
She was born in Chicago, but her family soon
moved to Nova Scotia and then settled
on the east coast, Massachusetts and later
New York. It is interesting that her talents were
discovered early. Her first illustrated story was
sold to the Boston Journal when she was just 12.
Her studies took her to the Boston Academy
of Fine Arts and Paris.
Another interesting point in the life of Price,
is that she was married to Irving Price who was
the cofounder of Fisher Price Toy Company
along with Herman Fisher.
