Nixon-era Idaho U.S. Attorney Sidney Smith died last Friday at the age of 95, the Associated Press reported. Smith was the state’s top federal prosecutor from 1971 to 1975.

Before becoming a federal prosecutor, Smith had his own private practice first in Idaho Falls and later in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. In 1970, President Richard Nixon appointed Smith Deputy General Counsel for the General Services Administration in Washington, D.C. After serving in the position for one year, he was appointed U.S. Attorney for Idaho.

After leaving the public sector, Smith was a candidate for Idaho Lieutenant Governor in 1965.
