It is difficult with a man of as many parts as Stephen Murray-Smith to identify his most important legacy. For his friends and students, it is probably the memory of the man himself, with his magisterial authority, polymathic knowledge, unswerving principle, compassion, generosity and conviviality. These qualities changed the world by changing uncounted lives, but, after the deaths of those who knew him, his tangible legacy will be found in the word-hoard he has left in his published works, in the papers of those who received his letters, and in his own papers now in the State Library.
