Wilfrid Philip Ward (1856-1916) was a British
author and catholic apologist. He was born on January 2, 1856 in Hertfordshire,
the son of William George Ward and Frances (Wingfield) Ward. He began his
education at the Gregorian University, but, realizing the priesthood was
not his vocation, moved to Upshaw College. Ward spent ten years as
an examiner in mental and moral science at the Royal University of Ireland.
He became an editor of the Dublin Review in 1906.
Ward wrote numerous books on the Oxford movement but is most noted for his
biographies of the movement’s leading figures. As the request of Cardinal
Vaughan, Ward wrote The Life and Times of Cardinal Wiseman, published in
1897. Another of Ward’s major works was The Life of Cardinal Newman,
published in 1912. He promoted dialogue between Catholics and
Anglicans. Ward died on April 9, 1916.
