A member of the infamous "Texas Trio" of writers, along with fellow wordsmiths Jack Sowards and David Westheimer, Emmy-winning pen-pusher Eugene Price frequently moved between daytime dramas (General Hospital and One Life to Live) and primetime presentations (Kung Fu and Marcus Welby, M.D.) of the 1960s and 1970s.
Born in Guthrie, OK, Price received his early education at Dallas' Sunset High School before majoring in drama at the University of Texas. He began his career as a writer after a post-college stint as a radio announcer for the Armed Forces Network for the U.S. Army stationed in Frankfurt, Germany. His earliest jobs alternating among soaps, primetime shows, and TV movies, Price received an Emmy and a Writers Guild Award for his work on Ryan's Hope in 1981.
Eugene Price died of natural causes at his Putney, VA, home on March 28, 2000. He was 68.
