Margaret Mary Smith (1916 - 1987), James Leonard Brierley Smith (1897 - 1968) with their dog, Marlin
The publication series (Monographs, Bulletins & Special Publications) of the SAIAB (formerly the JLB Smith Insitute of Ichthyology), in its new format honors James Leonard Brierley Smith and Margaret Mary Smith with the name Smithiana, in recognition of their many years of devoted service to African aquatic biology. Their life's work, a team effort, established modern ichthyology in southern Africa and laid the groundwork for the expansion of aquatic biology throughout the region.
