Hollis F. Price and the United Negro College Fund

Abstract:

Hollis F. Price (1904-1982) was a distinguished African-American educator, longtime president of LeMoyne College (1943-1970), and an important civic figure in Memphis. Beyond his many duties as president of LeMoyne (now LeMoyne-Owen), Price was remarkably active in several extramural organizations, prominently including the United Negro College Fund.
In 1943 Price represented LeMoyne at the first meeting of what would become the UNCF, and thereafter worked heroically for the UNCF for more than a quarter century. In the organization’s early years, when the presidents of member colleges were its chief fundraisers, Price’s efforts stood out. Each year he helped to raise money not only in Memphis but in other cities like Dallas and Detroit. He believed deeply in the Fund’s mission—supporting the private historically black colleges—and soon proved to be, because of that belief and his low-key but winning personality, a talented fundraiser.
As a result, in 1954-1955 he was called to New York to serve as the UNCF’s interim director of fundraising. Before, during, and after that year, he sought to find new, creative ways for the UNCF to raise money more effectively. He also spent countless hours after Brown helping the UNCF argue for the continuing need for private HBCU’s. In 1955 Price returned to the presidency of LeMoyne—and remained a very active UNCF fundraiser. Even after his retirement (1970), he continued to attend UNCF meetings to discuss both the future of private black colleges and the best ways of raising money to empower them economically.
