Z. "Smith" Reynolds was born in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, in November, 1911, to tobacco magnate, Richard Joshua Reynolds and his wife Katherine Smith Reynolds. Smith Reynolds attended Woodberry Forest School in Orange, Virginia, He was an aviation enthusiast, who undoubtedly would have made a name for himself in that field...had he lived longer. Smith Reynolds Airport in Winston-Salem is named in his honor. Smith died July 6th, 1932 under mysterious circumstances. He died from a gunshot wound to the head...while staying at the family estate, "Reynolda." His wife, actress/singer Libby Holman was indicted for his murder, but the charges were dropped by the Reynolds family. A great portion of Smith's Estate was used as the "core" for the Z. Smith Reynolds Foundation which has contributed many millions of dollars to worthy causes in North Carolina. (bio by: Dino)
