Raymond Burt Price, owner and editor of the "Ford Promoter," at Ford, Kan., is a product of the Middle West, and in his short business career has decidedly manifested the energy and industry so characteristic of the people of that section. He was born May 24, 1884, at Lyons, Neb., a son of William H. Price. The father, who passed away at Ford in 1909, was a native of Ohio, born Sept. 7, 1851. On Aug. 9, 1883, at Decatur, Neb., he was married to Miss Anna Wilder, and of their union were born three children: Raymond Burt, Jasper W., who died in infancy; and Edith Helene, born June 16, 1900. The parents were subsequently residents of Iowa and Missouri and came from the latter state to Kansas in 1907. In July, 1909, the father became the editor and proprietor of the "Ford Promotor," but was in charge of it only a few months when death closed his career of usefulness. He was a Christian gentleman and lived the life he professed. In the few months that he mingled with the people of Ford his life was so upright, his dealings with his fellow men so fair and courteous, and he had so heartily entered into the life and ambition of the town in its upbuilding, that probably no citizen was more endeared to its people and more highly esteemed than was William H. Price, at the time of his death. Recognizing the power for good that was his, he set forth a clean, substantial paper, one that stood for law, morality and righteousness and it was made to reflect the energy and ambition of Mr. Price for the upbuilding of Ford and its community.

Raymond Burt Price was reared in Iowa and was educated there, graduating in the high school at Prairie City. He accompanied his parents to Kansas and was connected with a newspaper at Meade until he assumed charged of his father's paper at Ford. Experienced in newspaper work and actuated by the same noble purposes as was his father, he puts forth a paper, creditable in every respect, and one that is the pride of Ford. Mr. Price affiliates fraternally with the Masonic order and as a citizen enjoys the same marked esteem as did his father.
