Anna Belle Smith (1863-1939) was a native of New London, Connecticut. She was a teacher and a student of art, studying art abroad for seven years. She came to Maryville in 1914 to replace Rev. Thomas Campbell as the Maryville College teacher of art. She was connected to Maryville College by virtue of the fact that her sister, Janes Bancroft Smith was married to Rev.

From 1919 to her death in 1939, Anna Smith was the librarian of the new Blount County Public Library, which she helped to found.
