We report on a comprehensive search for Wolf-Rayet (W-R) stars in the SMC using interference filter imaging. Photometry of over 1.6 million stellar images on multiple, overlapping fields covering 9.6 deg2 found the previously known W-R stars at very high significance levels, two known Of-type stars, plus additional candidates, which we examined with slit spectroscopy. We discovered two new Wolf-Rayet stars, both of type "WN3 + abs," bringing the total number in the SMC to 11. We discuss their… Expand
