Business Magnate. He and brother William Wallace Smith took over restaurant and cough drop business in Poughkeepsie, New York in 1866 when their father, James Smith, the founder died. Later, to distinguish their brand from other imitations they registered their pictures as trademarks and positioned same on their product packaging above words trade and mark. William was over "Trade" and Andrew was over "Mark" and thus the "Smith Brothers" earned those nicknames.
