About Bernhard Wise

  • Bernhard Ringrose Wise (10 February 1858 – 19 September 1916) was an Australian politician.
  • He was a social reformer, seen by some as a traitor to his class, but who was not fully accepted by the labor Movement.
  • He said, "My failure in Sydney has been so complete—my qualities those which Australia does not recognise, my defects those which Australians dislike most." When he died, William Holman said, "There is hardly anything in our public life which we have to consider to-day that cannot be traced back to his brilliant mind and clear foresight … [Wise] held undisputed supremacy as the foremost debater, foremost thinker and foremost public man in the life of New South Wales".
