According to Wikipedia, George Robert Price was an American population geneticist. Price is often noted for his formulation of the Price equation in 1967. Originally a physical chemist and later a science journalist, he moved to London in 1967, where he worked in theoretical biology at the Galton Laboratory, making three important contributions: first, rederiving W.D. Hamilton's work on kin selection with the new Price equation that vindicated group selection; second, introducing the concept of the evolutionarily stable strategy , a central concept in game theory; and third, formalizing Fisher's fundamental theorem of natural selection.
