William French Smith served as U.S. Attorney General from 1981 to 1985. A longtime friend and confidant of President Ronald Reagan, Bill Smith helped formulate the vital policies that came to be identified with the Reagan administration. In January 1984, Smith announced his resignation in order to work on President Reagan's reelection campaign and to return to private life. ￼ Smith died on October 29, 1990, in Los Angeles, and is survived by his wife, Jean Smith. His children all live in California and two of his grandchildren graduated from Pepperdine University's Seaver College.
