Tribute from Lucy McProud: Dr. Elveda Smith was a tremendous mentor for me in the Dept. of Nutrition , Food Science and Packaging at San Jose State University. She welcomed me and was dedicated to orienting and supporting me throughout my career as a faculty member, and then as Dept. Chair . She served as Dept. Chair herself before I came to SJSU, and was also Graduate Coordinator ..

I started teaching at San Jose State University in the NUFS dept in 1982.  I was a brand new full time instructor.    Dr. Smith was a huge presence in the department. I was very impressed with her knowledge and authority and I always addressed her as Dr. Smith - and still do!
