A. G. Prince (born in Birmingham) is a former steelworker, artist and author.

Prince grew up in Ensley and graduated from public schools while also working at Tennessee Coal, Iron & Railroad Company's Ensley Works, where he spent a total of five decades. He took a few years off to study commercial art under Clint Bonner at the Gulf States Art School.

Prince's drawings of steel mills appeared several times in the U. S. Steel Journal. With the assistance of its editor, Neil Ellis and the support of his wife, Juanita, Prince collected his illustrations of Alabama landmarks, including covered bridges, and historical buildings in Ensley and Birmingham, along with short historical descriptions, in a series of self-published books.
