Abraham [and 5] Smoot [ I ]

First President of the Board of Trustees of Brigham Young Academy in Provo, Utah. Abraham Owen Smoot I. Served on Board of Trustees, 1875 to 1895. Honorary Alumnus of BYH. Born: 17 February 1815 in Owenton, Kentucky, to Ann Rowlett and George W. Smoot. Wives: Margaret Thompson McMeans Adkinson, Emily Harris, Sarah Gibbons (div.), Diana Tanner Eldredge, and Anna Kirstine Mouritsen, all married before he became Mayor of Salt Lake City. In the 19th century, Abraham O. Smoot's visionary leadership and personal financial sacrifice maintained the viability of Brigham Young Academy. "My great grandfather, A.O. Smoot, was known as the 'foster father' of Brigham Young Academy because of his devotion to the school and it was one of his most memorable experiences," said Stanley Smoot, his great-grandson. Smoot, Abraham Owen (1815-1895) -- also known as Abraham O. Smoot; A. O. Smoot -- of Salt Lake City, Salt Lake County, Utah; Provo, Utah County, Utah. Nephew of Daniel Rowlett and Joseph Rowlett; father of Abraham Owen Smoot II (1856-1911) and Reed Smoot; grandfather of Abraham Owen Smoot III and Isaac Albert Smoot. Born in Owen County, Ky., February 17, 1815. Mayor of Salt Lake City, Utah, 1857-66; mayor of Provo, Utah, 1868-81. Mormon. Died in Provo, Utah County, Utah, March 6, 1895. Abraham Owen Smoot I, was sent to Provo by Brigham Young in 1868, where he presided over the Utah Stake (all of Utah Valley) for 27 years until his death in 1895. He was also the first President of the Board of Trustees of the Brigham Young Academy (1875-1895) and is still the longest standing mayor of Provo. Despite steady growth during its early years, Brigham Young Academy was threatened by a series of financial and physical setbacks. With the help and sacrifice of Abraham O. Smoot I, the campus moved in 1891 to new facilities located on University Avenue. Abraham O. Smoot I, a highly successful businessman, stake president, mayor of Provo, and chairman of the board of Brigham Young Academy, gave his buildings, his land, and mortgaged his home in order to save the institution. He died penniless, having given everything to the school. A. O. Smoot I, in summary, was a dominant figure in the history of Provo and the state of Utah. He was described by his son-in-law, Orson F. Whitney, as "colonizer, financier, civic officer, legislator, missionary, Bishop and Stake President, who frequently sat with the leaders of the Latter-Day Saint Church."

President, Pep Club, 1932-1933. ~ ~ ~ ~ HER OBITUARY: Anita Smoot Hammond, wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and friend, died Wednesday, August 2, 2000. Born on September 27, 1916 in Provo, she was the daughter of Harlow E. and Anita P. Smoot, the grand-daughter of Senator/ Apostle Reed Smoot, and the great- grand- daughter of Abraham O. Smoot. Anita graduated from Brigham Young High School, and then from Brigham Young University at age 19 with high honors, at which time she married her long-time sweetheart, Roy B. Hammond, a member of the BYH Class of 1932. A devoted and supportive wife, she accompanied Roy to medical school in Washington D.C. and then lived in the family home with their son, Roy Allen, while her husband served in the Air Force in New Guinea for three years. They subsequently established a medical practice in Provo and had three more children: Kristine, Richard, and Robert. Anita served for many years in the Ladies Auxiliary of the Provo Chamber of Commerce, the Utah County Medical Auxiliary, and the Utah State Medical Auxiliary, acting as president of each of these organizations, as well as serving for one term on the BYU Alumni Board. She had been a member of the Phila Nada Club and the Riverside Country Club since their inceptions. She was active in the LDS Church throughout her life. Anita loved golf, skiing, and tennis and enjoyed fishing and hunting with her husband. She did superb needlework and was an excellent cook; however, her greatest love was her family and her greatest joy came from serving them. We celebrate her life, her love, and her example and will find joy in her memory and the sense of "family" she instilled in each of us. Anita is survived by her husband, Dr. Roy B. Hammond; her sons: Dr. Roy A. Hammond, Richard Hammond, and Robert Hammond; her daughter, Kristine Hammond; 16 grandchildren; ten great-grandchildren; and a brother, Reed Smoot, of Salt Lake City. A private family service was held in her honor. The family suggested that contributions be made to the Maternity Department at Utah Valley Hospital. [Deseret News, Saturday, August 5, 2000.]

Reed & Stella Smoot

BYH class year not yet known. Reed Smoot. He did attend and graduate from BYH -- not yet sure of the graduation date but it would have been in the early 1930's. He attended BYU for one year and then transferred to Stanford. Married Stella Madsen. ~ ~ ~ ~ HIS OBITUARY: Reed Smoot died at home October 8, 2007, in the company of his daughters. He was 88. He is survived by his three daughters, Kathryn Smoot Egan (Wayne), Anita Smoot Hartmann (Dieter) and Marilyn Smoot; his grandchildren, Jason Reed Caldwell (Lisa) and Sherilyn Kathryn Phillips (Trevor) and five great-grandchildren. He was a remarkable, gentle man, self-controlled and goal-oriented, who cherished and adored his wife Stella and loved his daughters, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Until the end of his life, he lived according to his own high principles and values, dignified and concerned for anyone in his presence. He was the retired executive vice president and chief operating officer of U & I Incorporated. Reed was born in Provo, Utah on June 8, 1919 to Harlow E. and Anita Parkinson Smoot, and was the grandson of Senator Reed Smoot of Utah. He married his first, only and great love, Stella Madsen, in the Salt Lake LDS Temple December 28, 1939, then moved to Palo Alto, California, where he received his B.A. from Stanford University in 1940. He began work with the U & I Sugar Company in West Jordan, Utah as a storekeeper in the supply room. After service in the U.S. Navy, he returned to U & I, became an assistant purchasing agent, a cashier and office manager in Chinook, Montana, moved into sales in Spokane and later Seattle, Washington. In 1954 he became assistant sales manager in Salt Lake City, then general sales manager, and joined the executive committee and board of directors as vice president. When U & I Incorporated bought land beside the Columbia and Snake Rivers, he and Stella moved to Richland, Washington, where he was the chief operating officer and managed 100,000 acres of agricultural development. He retired from U & I in 1981, after 42 years of service. Reed served in the U. S. Navy in World War II as a radio technician having trained in radio, radar and long-range navigation. He chose this on enlistment, because he thought it would be more interesting than being an officer. He used his radio and electronic skills the rest of his life. Reed and Stella had an active social life over the years with a wide variety of friends. They enjoyed dancing and playing golf and were members of the High Steppers and Skate Clubs, The Ambassador, Fort Douglas and Salt Lake Country Clubs. After his retirement they crisscrossed the United States by automobile, and went to Southern Africa to spend time and travel with their daughter Anita, who resided in Namibia. They enjoyed their grandchildren, great-grandchildren. Reed was a diplomat, impeccably fair, and a true gentleman to the very end. He will be greatly missed. Farewell our wonderful father, grandfather and friend. Graveside services were held Saturday, October 13, 2007 at the Provo City Cemetery, 610 South State Street, Provo.
