:"For the U.S. diplomat and academic, see Arthur Sherburne Hardy."Arthur Sturgis Hardy (December 14, 1837 – June 13, 1901) was a lawyer and Liberal politician who served as Ontario's fourth Premier from 1896 to 1899.

Hardy attended school at the Rockwood Academy in Rockwood, Ontario. He was first elected to the Ontario legislature in 1873 and was promoted to the Cabinet of Sir Oliver Mowat in 1877 as Provincial Secretary. In 1889 as Commissioner of Crown Lands, Hardy established Algonquin Park. Entering his sixties and having been in government for over twenty years, Hardy lacked the energy and strength to take the government forward or excite the populace when he succeeded Mowat as both Premier and Attorney-General in 1896. In the 1898 election Hardy's government was returned with a narrow six seat majority due to the collapse of the agrarian Patrons of Industry party which had served as the Liberal's allies in the legislature. Exhausted and needing money, Hardy retired from politics in 1899 and died two years later.
