Frederick C. Smith was born in Shanesville, Ohio. He graduated in osteopathic medicine at Kirksville, Missouri, and practiced there for several years. He went abroad and continued his study of medicine in Frankfurt, Germany, and in Vienna, Austria. In 1917 was licensed to practice medicine and surgery in the State of Ohio and commenced practice at Marion, Ohio. He was mayor of Marion, Ohio, from January 1936 until January 1, 1939, when he resigned.
Smith founded the Frederick C. Smith Clinic in Marion, which brought together doctors in various fields in a practice that benefited from each doctor's specialty. The original clinic was located on East Church Street. The concern continues in Marion, Ohio, and still bears the name of Dr. Smith.
Smith was elected as a Republican to the Seventy-sixth and to the five succeeding Congresses. While in Congress, Smith "would invariably draw 'zero' ratings from the Americans for Democratic Action and other leftist groups." He was not a candidate for renomination in 1950. He resumed his medical profession and died in Marion, Ohio, on July 16, 1956. Interment in Marion Cemetery.
