History of Nancy Smith Hurd

Nancy Smith Hurd was born on March 6, 1926 in San Antonio, Texas. She was a descendent of the McKean family who came to Texas from Tennessee before the fall of the Alamo. She graduated from Alamo Heights High School and attended Trinity University. In 1957 she married the late John G. Hurd of Laredo, Texas, who was a widower with four young children. In 1970 her husband was appointed as Ambassador to the Republic of South Africa, where he served until 1975. Mrs. Hurd was a gracious and talented First Lady of the Embassy during this exciting period in the lives of the family. She was particularly adept at coping with the task of transferring the embassy residence between Capetown and Pretoria every six months.

Mrs. Hurd supported numerous philanthropic organizations addressing needs in education, charity, arts, medical research and nursing. She had a deep respect for the nurses who care for and tend the sick and wounded.

Mission Statement: The Nancy Smith Hurd Foundation will be a trusted funder in Bexar County, Texas, by supporting programs that improve education, health, family well-being, arts, culture, and animal welfare.
