The record of Smith's research, teaching, and service was extraordinary. He produced more than 600 publications including three enormous catalogues of the insects of New Jersey, popular books such as Our Insect Friends and Enemies, and scientific and practical guides to various aspects of economic entomology. In addition to his publications, Smith taught three or four courses each semester. A partial list of his major scientific and popular works includes:
1 John Smith, "Report of the Entomological Department of the New Jersey Agricultural College Experiment Station for the Year 1901," (John Murphy Publishing Co., 1902), vol., 587.
