Bio by Craig, son of Douglas:

Raised in Toronto. (High Park)(Runeymede) Son of Dr. Rod T. Smylie and Mary Smylie Graduated from Humberside Collegiate (1939) Recieved a football scholarship at Ithica University in up-state New York.

Doug then met and married my mother, Constance, in 1947 and had three children, Randy Sheryl and myself, Craig. During that time, Doug's football career went from the Allouettes of Montreal to Toronto Argos, and to the Ottawa Rough Riders , and then back to the Argos, in 1950. They won the cup that year, I think. All I know is of that game, my father was party to the Grey Cup!

I should also add that my father was dedicated and as well as a great friend of Charlie Conacher, my father's mentor. My father stayed with him until he died.
