Subject: RE: Are most composers smokers?
Well, I finally remembered to ask my brother about Roy Harris, the American classical composer. Unusually for that time, early 60s, theirs was a tobacco-free home with teenagers, even!

Also, he said Brahms was known for smoking big cigars and Schumann was also known for smoking.
