Carl D. Smith, although still a young man, has been prominently identified with the establishment of a number of newspapers in the state of New York.
He was born in Chateaugay, Franklin county, New York, June 19, 1876, and was educated at the Franklin Academy, Malone, New York. While employed in the office of the Malone Farmer, in 1892, he took up the trade of printing and was thus engaged for a period of three years. He then organized the Adirondack Enterprise, at Saranac Lake, this paper being one of the pioneers in this field of publication in that section of the country. Subsequently he purchased the Tupper Lake Herald, and the Lake Placid Adirondack, editing and publishing these in connection with the Adirondack Enterprise. At the expiration of four years he sold his interests in these papers and came to Victor, New York, in 1899, where he purchased the Herald, which he has edited and published since that time. He established the East Bloomfield Review in 1900, and at the present time (1910) gives his personal attention to both publications. Both papers express independent opinions on political subjects.
