William Hardy Wilson 1881-1955
Born at Campbelltown in New South Wales, Wilson trained as an architect in Sydney. He also undertook art training. After completing his articles he travelled to England in 1905, then Europe and America, returning to Sydney in 1910 and now known as Hardy rather than William.

Ambitious to make Australians as aware of their colonial heritage as Americans were of theirs, Wilson began to make drawings of colonial buildings in Tasmania and New South Wales, regularly exhibiting. His study of early buildings also informed his architectural practice.

In Europe from 1922 to 1925 Wilson sought out the best printmakers and printers to reproduce his completed drawings for Old Colonial Architecture in New South Wales and Tasmania which was published in Sydney in 1924. The original drawings were purchased by the Commonwealth government in 1926.
