Vermont Governor. The son of Governor J. Gregory Smith, nephew of Congressman Worthington Smith, and grandson of Congressman John Smith, he graduated from Yale in 1875, studied law at Columbia University, and became an attorney in St Albans. He succeeded his father as President of the Central Vermont Railroad, was President of Welden National Bank, and was a founder of People's Trust Bank of St. Albans and New York City's Sherman National Bank. A Republican, he served as a Colonel in the Vermont Militia and was a member of the Vermont House of Representatives from 1891 to 1892. Smith served as Governor from 1898 to 1900. In 1899 he officiated at the welcome home ceremony in Bennington for Admiral George Dewey, hero of the Spanish American War. Smith was also the organizer of "Old Home Week," the fair and festival designed to celebrate rural life and the Vermont roots of Americans living in other states. After serving as Governor he returned to his railroad and banking interests. (bio by: Bill McKern)
