Assistant Professor Robert M. Smith joined the UW-Eau Claire journalism faculty in 1967 as a graphic arts specialist. He was instrumental in the development of photography and typography courses and in the planning of the Hibbard Hall classroom facilities for these instructional areas. He died suddenly in the fall of 1974. In May 1975, the Robert M. Smith Graphics Laboratory, previously located in HHH 104 before the 2009 opening of the CJC, was dedicated.
