SIR FRANCIS VILLENEUVE SMITH

Third Chief Justice of Tasmania 1870-1885


By Dr J M Bennett AM and Ronald C Solomon

This book celebrates the bicentenary of Sir Francis Villeneuve Smith's birth. Admitted to the Tasmanian Bar, F. V. Smith was an immediate success professionally and politically, being fourth Premier (post Responsible Government); Supreme Court Judge 1860-1870; and Chief Justice 1870-1885. His adventures along the way make for absorbing reading while revealing important ingredients in the “health of a democratic society”.
