b. 1925d. 2015
"Playwright, poet, wood engraver, artist, teacher, mentor – these descriptives fail to capture Waikato's Campbell Smith. He was a giant in art, gently shaping its future and its protagonists, yet always modestly, with patience, and humility."
"Campbell was made a Member of the New Zealand Order of Merit for service to the arts in 2003. In 2012 Waikato University awarded him an honorary doctorate."
