Dick Smith Archive

Dick Smith is an Australian entrepreneur, businessman, aviator, and political activist. Born in Roseville, New South Wales, Dick Smith dropped out of tertiary studies and started his career working for an electronics firm. In 1968 he opened a Dick Smith Car Radio installation store in suburban Sydney, which grew to become the highly successful retail chain Dick Smith Electronics. Smith sold the company to Woolworths in the early 1980’s in order to pursue his interests in aviation, publishing and philanthropy. In his philanthropic work Smith was a strong supporter of the Reverend Ted Noffs’ Life Education Centres, donating the first mobile classroom in 1981. In 1983 he completed the first solo helicopter flight around world and in 1985 he published the first issue of Australian Geographic. Smith was awarded Australian of the Year in 1986, was named an Australian Living Treasure in 1997, and was awarded an Officer of the Order of Australia in the Australia Day Honours of 1999 for his services to the community, charity and business.
