Arthur Norman Smith was a founder of the Australian Journalists’ Association, served as its first general president and for five years as its general secretary. Thanks to a generous gift from the Smith family, the prestigious A N Smith Lecture in Journalism is presented each year by a leading authority on some aspect of journalism.
The first annual A N Smith Lecture in Journalism was held in 1938. The lecture is presented by a leading authority on some important aspect of journalism.
A University Trust Record governs the use of the fund.
