Jimmy Smith
City: Buffalo

Inducted: 1941

Smith was principally an exhibition bowler, although he won two USBC Open Championships all-events titles. He was named to the first team of Bowling Magazine's Pre-1950 All-America squad. He twice won the Petersen Classic in Chicago. In 1928, in one of the few arranged matches of his career, he defeated John (Count) Gengler to send that fabled hustler into retirement.
