University Press of Florida

Smith grew up in a small ranching town in southwest Florida called Arcadia. His father’s large and accomplished family lived there as well, providing structure for Smith and his siblings, whose father was often absent. Smith’s mother provided stability and inspiration. Smith graduated high school and worked odd jobs while attending college part-time. This lasted until he enlisted in the army shortly before the United States entered World War II.
