Dick Price

Richard "Dick" Bond Price was one of the first Eagle Scouts in Chattanooga.  He earned the award sometime between June and October 1920.


In December 1919, the Executive Board approved awarding the First Aid merit badge to Dick Price, of Troop 1.  By October 1920, Troop 5 boasted four Eagle Scouts, including Dick Price.  It is unclear when his troop number changed.

Born in Chattanooga on April 23, 1906, Dick was the son of George McMillan Price and Mary Louis Bond.  In 1939, Dick married Margaret Virginia Waterhouse on Signal Mountain, Tennessee.  Linton Waterhouse, brother of the bride, served as a "junior groomsman."  Linton himself was involved in Scouting, having earned the Eagle Scout award in 1939 as well.  Another groomsman, Carter M. Parham, was also a 1920 Eagle Scout.


Dick passed away on February 9, 1991 and is buried in Tucson, Arizona.
