Conversations with Papa Charlie:
A Memeory of Charles E. Smith
by David Bruce Smith 
 (Capital Books, 2000)
"In these pages, David Bruce Smith offers us this charming memory of his remarkable grandfather - a Russian Jew who immigrated to America in 1911 and built the Charles E. Smith real estate empire. David's memories subtly reveal the wisdom of a man who could turn problems into opportunities, a man who symbolized that great generation of turn-of-the century immigrants who made such a vital contribution to the "American Century.""
David Bruce Smith is a business executive, writer and editor, and the fourth of six grandchildren born into Charles E. Smith's family. He is senior vice president of commercial property management at the Charles E. Smith Companies, president of the Institute of Psychobiology in Jerusalem, and editor-in-chief of Crystal City magazine.
