Paul H. "Pete" Smith and Neil Todd started the Smith and Todd Poultry Farm of Nacogdoches, Texas sometime between 1947 and 1951. Both men appear in the 1947 Nacogdoches city directory with different occupations. The first reference to their company is in 1951, when Bright Coop sold it's first live "chicken hauler" for "Smith and Todd Poultry" (www.brightcoop.com/about-us). The 1952 city directory lists Smith and Todd Poultry Farm as the occupation of each man. The company changed its name to Smith and Todd Poultry, Inc. in 1966 and ceased operations in 1999.
