T. L. Smart (fl. c. 1870 - 1883) was a wood engraver and illustrator active in the United States and Canada from roughly 1870 - 1883. Smart is elusive. He was possibly English or Scottish and may have relocated to Ontario, Canada, in the 1860s or 1870s. Most of his work focuses on Ontario subjects, but he is identified as one of the engravers for John Russell Young's 1879 Around the World with General Grant. There is another Smart, R. M. Smart who also produced engravings for this work, but it is not clear if they are related. Smart typically signed his work as 'TL SMART,' 'SMART SC,' or 'TL SMART SC.' It is unclear what the 'SC' might have referred to.
