SIDNEY H. SMITH, M. D., of Monterey, is a native of Australia, born March 18, 1855, son of Alexander Smith, a California pioneer of 1849, of English birth. He lived in San Francisco and manufactured the first sash, doors and blinds in the city. With the exception of about four years spent in Australia he has been and still is a resident of San Francisco. He has engaged actively in the exploration of mines and done some successful mining in California.

The subject of this sketch is the first born of a family of eight children, six of whom survive. Dr. Smith was educated in the public schools of San Francisco and pursued his medical studies at the Hahnemann Homeopathic Medical College of San Francisco, graduating in 1885. He practiced his profession in that city until 1889, when he came to Monterey, where he has become a fixture, professionally, civilly and socially. He controls a growing practice and is the health officer of the city, and is a member of the Board of School Trustees. Another prominent position that he holds is that of Secretary of the Monterey Electric Light and Development Company.
