Dr. Francis Wise and family

Dr. Francis Herbert Wise was the grandson of Ingabor Olsen Wise who was born in Mt. Pleasant in 1893.  Ingabor was the daughter of Hans Peter Olsen and Anna Kjerstina Mathea Madsen Olsen. Ingabor married Samuel Pierce Wise.    Francis passed away in 1992. I, (Kathy) remember Francis' family visiting us each summer.  He was a full cousin to my mother,  Helen Olsen Rodgers Rigby.

Dr. Francis H. Wise was born in Salt Lake City, Utah and raised in Falls City, Oregon. When he was a child he saw a man with many degrees after his name and said to himself: “I want to have lots of initials after my name when I grow up.” This moment began a life of education and learning for the young boy. He attained a Doctorate of Philosophy, a Doctorate of Divinity, Master’s degree in Education and a Master’s degree in History. He attended: Willamette University, Oregon College of Education, Oregon State University, Harvard University, Union Theological Seminary, Oberlin Theological Seminary, University of the Philippines at Manila, University of Southern California, University of California, Los Angeles, and University of Illinois. Dr. Wise had a passion for education, family and children. He was in private practice in the Los Angeles area as a family and child psychologist for over thirty-five years.
