That's a nice pun; he certainly is pixelated.

Hubbard

A forced landing in the Dakotas

Don Hubbard writes:

Jack, I found this in one of my old books, a hunting trip when the plane quit. I took the picture. I left high school in 1946, and [W. L.] "Sling" Davis had passed away because they gave me his wrist watch for graduation. My memory is slipping as it's been only 50 years or a little more. 1945? As you can tell, a 3 point landing.

Sling Davis is on the left, Don Davis in the center, and Doc Smith on the right. We were heading for Wyoming to hunt elk or moose.

W. L. Davis was President and owner of Romec Pump during World War II. That's Lear-Romec in Elyria now. Bob Davis was killed in 1941 strafing an airfield. Don Davis graduated in 1944. It was Sling's plane.

In 1944, one of my lungs was collapsed in an accident. Mrs. Smith saw me practicing basketball and told Dr. Smith. He called my parents, and I was grounded.

Tad writes:

Earlier this year (1999) Tad visited San Rafael, California, where he had dinner with his brother Dr. Mark Taylor Smith and his sister-in-law Nancy. Mark, who has his Ph.D. in bioengineering from the University of Utah, conducts research at the Hewlett-Packard Company in Palo Alto, California.

Dr. Taylor Smith 1905 -1997

Dr. Taylor Smith was born in Gold Roads, Territory of Arizona, on June 20, 1905. His father was a mining engineer who was bitten by the gold bug. Dr. Smith's father moved his family to San Francisco shortly after the great earthquake where he sold real estate for several years. But the lust for gold soon took him to Sutter Creek, California. This picture was taken of Dr. Smith, age 10, his older sister Carmen, age 12, and his baby sister Francis, age 2, in Sutter Creek in 1915.

Dr. Taylor Smith graduated from the University of Nevada in 1926. He traveled east to Cleveland, Ohio, to attend the Western Reserve University School of Medicine. When the depression struck, the bank where Dr. Smith had placed his tuition money closed, and he was forced to drop out of medical school and take a job as a junior high school science teacher to earn the money that he [Dr. Taylor Smith] needed to return a year later to medical school. Dr. Smith's graduation picture taken in 1932 will be posted later. While at Western Reserve, Dr. Smith met and subsequently married Evelyn Amy Fruehauf from Cleveland, Ohio.

Charles Bruce Smith 12/23/1936 - 8/25/2016 Ann Arbor, Michigan

Dr. Charles Bruce Smith (Tad) (80 years old) died on August 25, 2016 at his home with his beloved wife of 37 years, Peggie, by his side 734-769-0376 (home phone).

He was born on December 23, 1936 in Cleveland, Ohio to Taylor Smith and Evelyn (Fruehauf) Smith. After graduation from high school in Avon, Ohio, he entered Harvard College where he studied History and Literature.

Prior to pursuing graduate studies, he spent a year in Freiburg, Germany as a Fulbright Scholar. He then received his M.D. degree from Harvard Medical School and his Ph.D. in Pharmacology from Harvard University.

In July 1966 he joined the faculty of the University of Michigan Department of Pharmacology. He became a Professor of Pharmacology in the Medical School and Professor of Nursing in the School of Nursing.

He was a dedicated teacher committed to each of his students receiving a fully-rounded education. Tad and Peggie built their lives together as best friends and fellow researchers. He especially enjoyed their trips to Japan as visiting faculty at Hokkaido University Medical School, in Sapporo.

Among his many accomplishments was selection for the Golden Apple Teaching Award from the University of Michigan Medical School. He held leadership positions at the local, state and national levels in the American Association of University Professors.

He was a major contributor to the success of the Davis, Markert, Nickerson Lecture on Academic and Intellectual Freedom. Tad was heavily involved in faculty governance, serving on most of the Senate Assembly committees, many as Chair of the committees and then two years as Chair of the Senate Advisory Committee on University Affairs (SACUA). The University of Michigan recognized his efforts by awarding him the Faculty Governance Award for his dedicated service and activism. He received the Harold R. Johnson Diversity Service Award for his professional lifetime commitment to equality and access to education for underrepresented minorities and women.

Tad had a generous, engaging wonderful spirit. He had many hobbies that included being a self-taught gourmet cook. One of the great pleasures of his life was the satisfaction family and friends felt after eating one of his beautifully prepared, delicious meals. As an avid gardener, his landscaping and vegetable gardens were a relaxing activity for him to create. Reading novels, especially mysteries based on ancient history, was a daily passion for him.

Tad leaves to mourn him, in addition to his wife, are his stepson, Virgil Chancy (Cizuru) granddaughter, Daniela Chancy, three brothers, Taylor (Carol), Terrence and Mark (Nancy) and many nieces, nephews, friends and colleagues. He was preceded in death by his parents and sister Mary Smith.

n lieu of flowers contributions to his memory may be made to the Academic Freedom Lecture Fund, P.O. Box 4152, Ann Arbor, Michigan 48106-4152. A memorial service is planned for the future.
