Arthur Smith was a prominent neo Nazi activist during the 60s. Smith was one of the first visible neo Nazi figures in Australian history, being politically active on the far right for years. He went on to found his own neo Nazi party the Australian National Socialist Party.
Smith based himself on the growing neo Nazi groups and leaders in other Western countries such as the American George Lincoln Rockwell and English Colin Jordan. The self proclaimed Australian fuhrer remained head of the ANSP until 1968 and died some time after.
