Title

Drawing representing John Price

Description

Drawing of John Price, the runaway slave who was rescued from slave catchers by Oberlin and Wellington residents on 13 September 1858. This event led to the indictment of the Oberlin Rescuers, a trial, and their subsequent release from prison in July 1859. This drawing by the late Paul Arnold, Oberlin Professor of Art, illustrated the cover of The 1858 Oberlin-Wellington Rescue: A Reappraisal, by Roland M. Baumann (Oberlin, OH: Oberlin College, 2003).
