Judge. George Rose Smith was known for his wry sense of humor. He was a grandson of Uriah Rose, the founder of the Rose Law Firm in Little Rock (Pulaski County), and served as a partner in the firm until his election to the Arkansas Supreme Court in 1948. He holds the record as the longest-serving justice in the history of the Arkansas Supreme Court, retiring in 1987. He enjoyed word play, producing eighteen popular crossword puzzles published by the Arkansas News. He participated in thousands of cases and wrote more than 2000 opinions.
