PAUL SMITH, NOTED PIONEER’S SON, DIES
Saturday at Richmond, Va.— Ulcerated Tooth Ends Fatally to Adirondack Hotelman
Word reached Saranac Lake Saturday of the death of Paul Smith at Richmond, Va. Heart disease brought a sudden end to illness caused by infection from an ulcerated tooth. He was fifty-seven years old. Mr. Smith was the son of the famous Adirondack woodsman, business man and hotel Proprietor who died several years ago. He was the hotel owner, guide and host to President Coolidge at the latter's camp last summer. He and his brother, Phelps Smith, inherited one of the greatest properties in the Adirondacks. For a time after the death of his father Paul Smith took an active part in management of the hotel, railroad. electric power. real estate and lumbering business left by his parent.
During late years, however, he spent much time in travel, but was often at Paul Smith's, where he lived in one of the cottages connected with the great hotel. In 1925 he sold his interest in Adirondack properties left by his father to New York people at a reputed price of more than one million dollars. The body of Smith was brought to the Adirondacks and buried beside his famous father in the church yard at St. John's in the Wilderness, Wednesday. He is survived by a widow and one brother.
