At a special book signing and speaking engagement on May 6, businessman and author Robert Price shared his personal reflections about his father, Sol Price, for whom our UC San Diego Price Center is named.  His new book is titled “Sol Price: Retail Revolutionary and Social Innovator.”  More than 200 people packed the J.R. Beyster Auditorium at UC San Diego’s Rady School of Management to hear Robert Price share stories about the business success, personal life and lessons learned from his father, who founded the highly successful Price Clubs.  Before introducing Robert Price at the event, Chancellor Khosla thanked the Price family for the impact they’ve had on our campus.  He also told the crowd that UC San Diego is a student-centered university, and that those two words are synonymous with our Price Center.
