David and Alfred Smart were the Chicago-based founders of Esquire magazine, launched in 1933. One of the first men's fashion magazines, Esquire was also distinguished by the high quality of its literary and editorial features: the first issue included pieces by Ernest Hemingway and Jon Dos Passos, and Dashiell Hammett. The Smart brothers' other ventures included Coronet Films, the nation's leading producer of educational and training films during the Cold War era—many of which are now cult favorites. This fully illustrated biography chronicles their lives and innovations in the film and magazine publishing business. Book: Two Visionary Brothers: DAVID AND ALFRED SMART by - DAVID MAZIE, 2003 Distributed for Smart Museum of Art, The University of Chicago As entrepreneurs, David and Alfred Smart capitalized on a previously overlooked market for male fashion and culture. Their formidable Chicago-based publishing empire became known as Esquire, Inc, after the jewel in its crown, Esquire: The Magazine for Men, which was first published in 1933. They went on to launch other magazines—Apparel Arts, the parent magazine of today’s GQ, in 1931; Coronet in 1936; Verve in 1937; and Ken in 1938. The Smart brothers also founded Coronet Instructional Films in the late 1930s, a production company inspired by David’s home movie hobby.
The David and Alfred Smart Museum of Art is an art museum located on the campus of the University of Chicago in Chicago, Illinois. The permanent collection of over 10,000 objects includes works by Francisco Goya, Frank Lloyd Wright, Edgar Degas, Auguste Rodin, Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso, Diego Rivera, Ansel Adams, and Mark Rothko. Admission is free. The Smart Museum and the adjacent Cochrane-Woods Art Center were designed by the architect Edward Larrabee Barnes. The Smart Museum was established in 1974 in association with the University of Chicago's Art History department. It was endowed by David A. Smart and his brother Alfred Smart, the publishers of Esquire and Coronet. In 1983, the museum became a separate unit of the university devoted to serving the entire community, including educational outreach activities in local public schools. In 2000 it completed a $2 million renovation. The Smart Museum is named in honor of brothers David (1892–1952) and Alfred (1894–1951) Smart, who built an innovative publishing business in Chicago. The brothers launched the sophisticated men’s fashion magazine Esquire in the heart of the Great Depression and followed it up with Coronet, a pocket-sized magazine with the slogan “infinite riches in a little room,” and Verve, an oversize avant-garde quarterly that featured original art by Matisse, Chagall, and Picasso. In the postwar years, they also produced short instructional movies through Coronet Films—titles like “How to Be Well Groomed,” “What to Do on a Date,” and “Are You Popular?” that shaped generations of students. The brothers established the Smart Family Foundation with a gift Esquire stock. The foundation’s first major philanthropic gift, in 1967, was to the University of Chicago to establish an art museum.
