Authentic Stories: Ham Smythe III

Even if you've never met W. Hamilton ("Ham") Smythe, you've almost certainly ridden in one of his family's taxis.  Or you've been on the 'Roo bus, or on any number of other transportation options that the Premier Transportation family proudly offers.  And you've probably benefited from one of the many business enterprises that Ham has been involved with...ranging from the Agricenter to ArtsMemphis, itself.  The fact is, Ham Smythe and his family are pillars of the Memphis business community.  His story is one more reminder that the arts are interwoven with every area of Memphis life.  Enjoy getting to know Ham in this video.
