After graduation Smith became a hospital intern, and for two years he was able to stay busy enough to refrain from heavy drinking. He married Anne Robinson Ripley (Anne Ripley Smith) on January 25, 1915, and opened up his own office in Akron, Ohio, specializing in colorectal surgery and returned to heavy drinking. Recognizing his problem, he checked himself into more than a dozen hospitals and sanitariums in an effort to stop his drinking. He was encouraged by the passage of Prohibition in 1919, but soon discovered that the exemption for medicinal alcohol and bootleggers (Rum-running) could supply more than enough to continue his excessive drinking. For the next 17 years his life revolved around how to subvert his wife’s efforts to stop his drinking and obtain the alcohol he craved while trying to hold together a medical practice in order to support his family and his drinking.

The river is a relatively recent geological formation, formed by the advance and retreat of ice sheets during the last ice age. The final glacial (glacier) retreat, which occurred 10,000–12,000 years ago, caused changes in the drainage pattern near Akron (Akron, Ohio). This change in pattern caused the originally southward-flowing Cuyahoga to flow to the north. As its newly reversed currents flowed toward Lake Erie, the river carved its way around glacial debris left by the receding ice sheet, resulting in the river's winding U-shape. These meanderings stretched the length of the river (which was only 30 miles (50 km) when travelled directly) into a 100-mile (160 km) trek from its headwaters to its mouth. The depth of the river (except where noted below) ranges from 3 to 6 feet (90–180 cm). 22 02 1967 align left '''Jarrod Alexander Cooper''' (born March 31, 1978 in Akron, Ohio) is a former American football safety (Safety (American football position)) with the Oakland Raiders and Carolina Panthers.
