W.W. Smith Charitable Trust Endowed Professorship in Neuroimmunology

The W.W. SMITH CHARITABLE TRUST was established in 1976 through the vision of the late WILLIAM WIKOFF SMITH, an industrialist, philanthropist, family man, and ship enthusiast. Throughout his life, he was dedicated to the belief that one’s good fortune should be shared with others, particularly institutions of higher learning and academic medical centers. He died in 1976. His wife, MARY L. SMITH, a former Hopkins trustee, continues to manage the trust, maintaining a keen interest in its growth and development.
