JULIAN STANTON WISE, born on the 19th October, 1876, was educated privately at Dover and at the Yorkshire College, Leeds, where his abilities received unique recognition in his being selected to receive the only honorary BSc. degree conferred on a student on the occasion of the opening of the University of Leeds.

He obtained his practical training at the Thames Ironworks, Blackwall, and under Mr. A. T. Walmisley.

In 1898 and the following year he carried out surveys in Russia and Asia Minor for Messrs. C. H. Walker and Company, and continuing in their service on his return to this country, he was engaged as contractor’s engineer on the Birmingham, Tame and Rea district drainage and a new building slip for the Admiralty at Chatham. He also acted as their Agent in charge of the construction of the Khedivial dock at Alexandria, and the partial reconstruction of Watchet Harbour.

Entering the service of the London County Council, he was employed on the construction of the Southern outfall sewer, and was engaged on similar work in West London at the time of his death, which occurred on the 17th October, 1906, in his thirtieth year.

Mr. Wise was elected an Associate Member of The Institution on the 14th January, 1902.
