Biographical Sketch

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.
