"Barry Wee Willie Winkle celebrates his 755th birthday in style tonight by throwing a huge party for all the wizards and witches he has ever known. 30 million are expected to attend tonight."
—"Oldest Wizard is 755", The Daily Prophet, 14 August, 1991[src]

Barry Wee Willie Winkle (b. 14 August, 1236) was the oldest known wizard in the 1990s, when he reached the age of 755. To celebrate the occasion, he held a massive party, inviting every wizard and witch he had ever known, a total of thirty million people. The scale of this party made Daily Prophet headlines in 1991.[1]


The name may be a reference to "Wee Willie Winkie", a Scottish poem about a boy who does not want to go to sleep.
