Milton G. Smith
(fl. 1897-1915)

Milton G. Smith was an assistant (in 1908) to Louis Pope Gratacap at the American Museum of Natural History. He worked developing techniques for mineral photography; many of Smith's mineral photos later appeared in Gratacap's A Popular Guide to Minerals (1912). He supplied neptunite specimens from California to William E. Ford for measurements in 1907. Smith is listed in the 1914 and 1919 Naturalists' Directory, saying that he "Deals in rare minerals" (1914). He was living in New York City (Manhattan) at 253 Broadway and donating minerals to the American Museum of Natural History in 1897-1912. One of his labels is marked "April 1915" on the back.
