Description
This is a collection of material retained by artist Margaret Price regarding the death of the beloved white deer of Mission Hills in 1975, and records of the memorial established after its death.
Background
Margaret Rose Taylor Price (1911-1992) was a local San Diego artist. Married to Herbert Price, she was the founding president of the “Allied Craftsmen” art movement, and was involved in converting Spanish Village in Balboa Park to an artists’ enclave after it was released by the Navy at the close of WWII. In the late 1970s, she became a part of the San Diego Museum of Art’s project to conduct a series of oral histories with prominent San Diego artists and architects. She taught ceramics at San Diego State University and the San Diego Museum of Art.
