He retired in 1926 and was named Professor Emeritus. Smith also served as Curator of the University Museum of Natural History from 1900 to 1917. Smith's field experience included investigations at the University of Michigan Biological Station during the summers of 1911-1914 and 1919-1922, and a collecting trip to Colorado in 1916. For many years, Smith identified specimens and worked up collections of earthworms for the United States National Museum (USNM). In 1934, he donated his collection of earthworms to the USNM.
