Historical Significance: Associate Professor George Smith (1941 - 2008) was a physicist who did his PhD in Reading University specialising in optics. He came to the University of Melbourne as lecturer in 1975 although he taught optics part time in the optometry course for several years before joining the full time staff. He taught optics to optometry students at a very sophisticated level and also supervised some PhD students, notable among them being David Atchison, who pursued a research interest in optics. He was promoted to senior lecturer and associate professor and retired in 2005 after 30 years' association with the College and the profession of optometry.
