Adventures of Sir Ignatius Tippitolio, The, 1945
Glanville Wynkoop Smith was one of Stearns County’s most remarkable
people. His intense interest in literature, music, design and people made him
the very embodiment of a Renaissance man. Smith was born in St. Cloud in 1901.
After college he lived in New York and was one of the architects who worked on
the Ziegfield Follies Theatre which has been renovated by the Disney
Corporation. In 1930 he returned to Stearns County and began designing for the
Cold Spring Granite Company. As a writer he was published in the National
Geographic, Christian Science Monitor and The Atlantic. Smith also composed
organ music for churches, was an active environmentalist, and president of the
Stearns County Historical Society. He died in 1987.
