Electra Kimble Price ’43

Elektra Kimble Price, Class of 1943

I was the first African-American elected to the Delphian Society. My admission was based on my grades and teacher recommendations. Though I was discouraged by my counselor from taking college prep classes, I did and graduated in the top 10% of my class. I remember our gym teacher thought we should be strong because we may have to fight in the War. We were encouraged to bring carrots and veggies to school so we would be properly nourished. I attended Cal, got married and raised a family. I returned to school and received Master’s Degrees in psychology and education
