American child actor most notable for his semi-regular role as the bookish rich kid Waldo in the Our Gang short subjects series from 1937 to 1940. "Waldo," who had an officious, studious nature about him, competed with schoolmates "Alfalfa" Switzer and "Butch" Bond for the affections of little Darla Hood.

As an adult, Smith became a Seventh-day Adventist pastor, ministering at several churches. On 15 May 2002, Smith was severely injured in a hit and run accident in Riverside, California. He died later that evening. He had been married for 50 years and had four sons.
