CONTEXTUAL INFORMATION

Administrative / Biographical history

In 1852, John Smith was appointed Foundation Professor of Chemistry and Experimental Physics at the University of Sydney, the first Professor of Chemistry in Australia. Smith was appointed Dean of the Faculty of Medicine in 1856 and became a Fellow of Senate in 1861. The University Archives hold a splendid collection of historic photographs of the University and Sydney surrounds taken between 1855 and 1880 by Smith. He was an exceptionally talented amateur photographer, one of the first in this country, and his photographs have historical significance in the development of the visual arts in Australia.
