Luther Ely Smith
Birth: Jun. 11, 1873
Death: Apr. 2, 1951

A St. Louis lawyer, Smith was an early promoter of the St. Louis Gateway Arch monument. He was appointed to a commission to build a monument in Indiana to frontier statesman George Rogers Clark. Smith thought that if Vincennes rated a monument, so did St. Louis. In the 1930's, he set in motion the campaign that eventually resulted in the building of the Gateway Arch in downtown St. Louis. The monument to Thomas Jefferson and the Louisiana Purchase was completed in 1965. (bio by: Connie Nisinger)
