U.S. #937 was issued to commemorate Alfred E. Smith, former governor of New York, who had died the previous year.
 
Alfred E. Smith
An important American political leader, “Al” Smith, as he was known, was born in New York City. He left school at the age of 12 to work as a newsboy.  For seven years, he worked in the Fulton Fish Market in New York City. At the age of 22, he became active in politics, and began working his way up the ranks of the Democratic Party.
 
In 1903, Smith was elected to the state legislature. Then in 1919, he was elected governor of New York. He was re-elected to that position three times.
 
He failed to win his party’s nomination for President of the United States in 1924, but he secured the nomination in 1928, with the help of his friend, Franklin D. Roosevelt. Many people opposed Smith because he was a Roman Catholic, and because he opposed prohibition. Smith lost the election to Herbert Hoover. Roosevelt gave Smith the nickname the “Happy Warrior”. Later, Smith broke his affiliation with Roosevelt, and became a critic of New Deal policies.
