J. Price appeared on the list of gentlemen attendees of the annual Purim Ball of 1889 at City Hall. [1] There was no “J.” Price listed in either the 1889 or 1890 Leadville City Directory. [2] “J. Price” was listed as an arrival at the Hotel Kitchen (today’s Tabor Grand) during the spring of 1890. [3] It is possible “J.” was a visitor to Leadville with some connection to the Jewish community, but his exact identity is unknown given the minimal information available.
