January 2017 Meeting: S. Morgan Smith Presentation

Our January 2017 program featured an overview of the incredible life of S. Morgan Smith.  

 

S. Morgan Smith began life as a farm boy in North Carolina, trained and served as a minister in the Moravian Church, and enlisted as a chaplain in the Union Army. 

He became an inventor and arguably the leading industrialist in the history of York County. Five existing companies in

York, with more than a combined 2,000 employees, trace their roots to the efforts of S. Morgan Smith.

Our presenter, The Rev. Dr. Stephen Nicholas Jr., is a retired Moravian Minister, a member of First Moravian Church

in York where S. Morgan Smith served as pastor during the Civil War years, and is a distant relative of Smith. Steve

served Moravian churches as pastor for forty-one years at locations in Ohio, New York City, Pennsylvania and the

Maryland suburbs of D.C. He and his wife, Kathleen, a registered nurse, both retired in 2007 and moved to their pre-
sent home in Haines Acres.

Steve is the author of two books, including the just published “Re-inventing the Wheel, the Incredible Story of S. Morgan Smith, Minister, Inventor, Industrialist.”
