 Smith Family Trusts

​​​​​​​Virginia and Cyril, sister and brother, grew up in Merced between 1900 and 1924. ​Their family home still stands on Courthouse​ Square.  Virginia went to Dominican High School and college in San Rafael and spent her adult life in San Francisco.
Cyril graduated from high school in Merced and then studied in Europe and at the University of California, Berkeley, where he earned a Ph.D. in History.  Each honored Merced with the wonderful gift of a scholarship trust, both of which are in memory of the entire Smith Family.
