Ted G. Smith’s Story

Ted G. SmithTheodore George “Ted” Smith was born in Nebraska and raised in Vancouver, Washington State, but spent most of his life living and working in Alaska.   He was the State Forester, head of the State Parks Department, and a State Legislator.   Ted passed away on January 1, 2012, and his wife Joyce passed away on June 27, 2012.

I’ve put Ted’s story  in the People section of this website.  One of his most vivid legacies is a video he made as a TV advertisement when he was running for election in 1974.   It’s only 44 seconds long but pretty funny for a politician running for office.  You can view it here but it is also found on the Albums section of the website.
