Charles Melvin Price Life

Charles Melvin Price (January 1, 1905 – April 22, 1988) was a long-serving member of the United States House of Representatives.

Among his other positions, he served as the chairman of the United States House Committee on Armed Services from 1975 to 1985.

At the beginning of the 99th Congress, he took his position.

Overthrowing a committee chairman was not a common occurrence at the time, but a majority of the House Democratic Caucus members seemed to agree that the older Price was no longer up to the job.

In addition, Price, who was liberal on domestic policy, was much more in favour of defense spending than most Democrats.

When it came to selecting Price' Rocket, the Caucus ignored several other senior members of the committee but Les Aspin was not only younger than Price and other more senior members, but also tended to be closer in his defense policy preferences to the majority of the Democratic Caucus. Price was born in East St. Louis, Illinois, and graduated from St. Louis University High School and Saint Louis University.

He worked as a journalist for many years before taking on the role of a secretary for Congressman Edwin Schaefer in 1933.

Price served in the quartermaster corps for ten years, after which he joined the US Army in 1943 during World War II.

In 1944, he was elected to Congress in his own right.

He chaired the Ethics Committee (1967–76) and the Joint Committee on Atomic Energy (1973–74).

He was in Congress until his death. Congressman Price is perhaps best known for his role in the introduction of the Price-Anderson Nuclear Industries Indemnity Act.

He died of pancreatic cancer in 1988.

The Melvin Price Locks and Dam, near Alton, Illinois, as well as the Melvin Price Federal Building and the United States Courthouse in East St. Louis, are among the names on the Melvin Price Locks and Dam.
