This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Clarence L. Smith was born in Elgin, IL on Dec. 12, 1851.  Smith was the son of the publisher of the Elgin Union and was working in newspaper work at an early age. By 1872 he had moved to San Francisco where he worked in the art department of the Examiner, a position he held until 1883.  The next nine years were spent in Portland, OR as a lithographer for West Shore magazine.  When the magazine folded in 1892, he returned to Chicago as an employee of the Chronicle for seven years.  In 1902 he was once again in San Francisco but in 1904 returned to Portland where he spent his remaining years as head of the art department of the Oregonian.  He died in Portland on June 3, 1934.
