Mrs. Smyth was a long-time docent at the Art Institute of Chicago. She was also a resident of Santa Fe and a major supporter of the Santa Fe Opera.

Mrs. Smyth’s collecting legacy will be offered this Spring at Hindman Auctions with the proceeds to benefit Berea College, to whom Mrs. Smyth made a planned gift during her lifetime.
