Smyth, 85, the third Smyth to carry that name and to head the Chicago furniture company once known as the city's finest, died Monday, Aug. 7, in Evanston Hospital of respiratory failure. For many Chicagoans, the name John M. Smyth evokes memories of the eight-story fine-furniture store once loc cited en Nortii Avenue. And aside from Marshall Field, in which both department store and successive generations of family members bore the same name, John M. Smyth was one of the few names to endure as synonymous with Chicago retailing. "He was very committed to keeping it an honorable name," said his wife, Judith. "He was proud of it and always tried to live up to it." A sociable but private man who spent a lifetime not only doing business in Chicago, but also maintaining a constant and extensive involvement in civic activities, Mr. Smyth bore his family's traditions well, said Chris Robling, former radio anchor and longtime Smyth family friend. "I think he was representative of the civic ideal that is so frequently discussed and rarely achieved," Robling said. "And he was one of these guys who would never talk about it or tell you about it. He was genuine, and I think that came through." Yet his was a childhood filled with opportunities few have. He grew up in Evanston and with his parents and grandparents spent summers in Lake Geneva, Wis. Mr. Smyth's father was leery of letting his son grow up accustomed to privilege, so Mr. Smyth cut lawns around their summer house as a boy; later summers were spent working in the Madison Street store his grandfather founded in 1867, Mr. Smyth's wife said. He attended the Latin School of Chicago and the Canterbury School in New Milford, and graduated from Princeton University in 1937 and Northwestern University School of William Cole; wrote, New York Times News Service William Rossa Cole, 80, an anthologist, editor and writer of children's books and light verse, died Aug. 2 at his home in Manhattan. Mr. Cole was the author, co-author, editor or co-editor of more than 75 books, including more than 50 anthologies for children and adults. Among them was "I Went to the Animal Fair: A Book of Animal Poems" (1958), an anthology for children that he edited. That book was on the American Library Association List of Notable Children's Books of 1940-59 and was McCAMBRIDGE Genevieve A.
