There is professional correspondence about his publications, awards, and research; correspondence about planning for conferences in the history of metallurgy and the conservation of metal, and other conferences he attended; and audiocassettes of lectures he gave. The collection includes drafts, reprints of Smith's lectures and writings, including his editions of several classical works on metallurgy, such as the medieval work On Diverse Arts, by Theophilus, and the PIROTECHNIA, by Biringuccio (1540). Also included are notes and drafts of his articles concerning structure as it relates to underlying patterns in both art and science, and annotated copies of his books A Search for Structure and Sources for the History of the Science of Steel. There is biographical information about Smith in the collection, personal correspondence, a videotape of a memorial lecture for Smith held in Toronto in 1992, the program from his MIT memorial service, and letters of condolence to his wife, Alice Kimball Smith, upon his death in 1992.
