Paul Samuel Smith

M, b. 3 July 1897, d. 19 May 1991
     Paul Samuel Smith was born on 3 July 1897 at Richmond, Wayne Co., IN. He was the son of Harrison Jones Smith and Louise May Wolfe. Paul Samuel Smith married Lillian Elizabeth McMinn, daughter of Francis Erwin McMinn and Emma Williams. Paul Samuel Smith died on 19 May 1991 at Los Angeles Co., CA, at age 93 OBITUARY - The Los Angeles Times, May 30, 1991

Nixon Teacher, Former Whittier College Head, Dies
Paul Samuel Smith, former Whittier College president and mentor to former President Richard M. Nixon, died recently at age 93.
The Whittier resident died May 18 after a brief illness.
Smith, a respected history scholar and teacher, became the college's eighth president in 1951 and held the position through 1969. During his tenure, enrollment rose from 800 to 2,000, and the college established a Copenhagen school, one of the first campuses overseas to encourage students to study abroad.
But Smith's presidency may be remembered best for bricks and mortar. "He was very good at convincing donors to help build buildings," said Roy Newsom, another former Whittier College president. More than a dozen buildings went up during Smith's tenure, including the college chapel where students and colleagues gathered last Saturday for a memorial service.
Nixon, a 1934 graduate of Whittier College, wrote one of the tributes for the memorial. "During my 45 years in the political arena, no one inspired and influenced me more than Dr. Paul Smith," Nixon wrote. "He was the best of scores of teachers I had in high school, college and law school."
Smith would lecture in his history courses on leaders such as Presidents James Madison and James Monroe in a way that inspired his students to follow in their footsteps, Whittier College Trustee C. Milo Connick said. Smith believed "in free enterprise and individual initiative," Connick said. "He believed that history was the length and shadow of great men."
Smith, an author of several books on American politics and the Constitution, criticized other scholars for what he called "debunking the heroes of American history" and breeding "a disrespect for the past." Smith believed that educators did a disservice by downplaying the virtues of democracy in an effort to be nonpartisan.
Smith was born in Richmond, Ind., and attended a one-room schoolhouse where he read Poe, Byron and biographies from the Congressional Record.
At Earlham College, a nearby Quaker school, he studied political science and served as student body president, returning home every afternoon to do farm chores. He received his master's and doctorate degrees at the University of Wisconsin and began teaching at Whittier in 1922. He became known both for his oratory and his camaraderie with students. He would often join them in pickup basketball games.
He made one his last public appearances four months ago at a memorial service for his wife, Lillian. Smith struggled to get out of his chair and slowly crossed the few feet to the speaker's podium, Connick said, but he retained the voice that once held students spellbound.
"He talked about the things he and Lillian were interested in throughout their lives," Connick said, such as world peace and helping the unfortunate. "He said these things hadn't materialized according to their hopes, but it was incumbent on humankind to keep working on them."


He was buried in May 1991 at Elkhorn Cemetery, Richmond, Wayne Co., IN.

Obituary -- (Findagrave.com):

The Smith family lived on the edge of Zanesville and Wayne Twp.. the story handed down in our family claimed she was the first white female born in Wayne Twp., but her death record states she was born in Zanesville. She was born Nov. 5, 1807 in a log cabin high on the bank of the south River Rd.

Here is a story that Libby Clapper (1909-1982) told of her Great Great Grandmother Rebecca Smith Clapper in her own words: "Rebecca was the midwife for the family and the neighbors. When my mother (Dessie Dutro) was 4 years old, a new baby was on the way (Harry Emerson Dutro 1877). Her mother sent her to get Great Grandma Becky. It was at least a mile and a half but she made it alright and Great Grandma Becky came back and helped deliver the baby. At that time she was 79 years old. My mother liked to visit with Becky , because she always had a treat for her. Becky smoked a pipe and would sit by the fireplace and the smoke, would swirl up the chimney. Mother liked that and she said that she never saw another woman smoke a pipe and she never forgot her Great Grandmother although she died when My mother (Dessie) was but 5 years old."

She was buried in April 1888 at Blue Rock Baptist Cemetery, Blue Rock Twp., Muskingum Co., OH, Findagrave #9772553.
