Hattiesburg, Miss.- Longtime William Carey University Professor and Faculty Athletic Representative, Dr. E. Milton Wheeler a servant of God, husband, friend, teacher, Rotarian, and lover of people, athletics and knowledge, passed away after an extended illness on March 24, 2014.
Visitation for Dr. Wheeler will begin on Sunday, March 30 at 1 p.m. and continue until 2:45 p.m. in Bass Memorial Chapel on the William Carey University campus in Hattiesburg. Dr. Wheeler devoted 55 years of his life to WCU, where he was a student and a professor. In addition to his role as professor of history, Dr. Wheeler served for seven years as dean of the School of Arts and Sciences, for two years as vice president for student development and for five years as vice president for academic affairs. He was named outstanding faculty member numerous times and served for 36 years as the faculty athletic representative for the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics. He was born in Mobile, Ala., on July 23, 1939, and graduated from Vigor High School before beginning his studies at then-William Carey College. While a student at Carey, Dr. Wheeler was editor of The Cobbler student newspaper and won a Woodrow Wilson Fellowship to attend graduate school. He recalled in a 2006 interview that his favorite moment while a student at Carey was "being editor of The Cobbler and winning the prize for being the best newspaper among small colleges in the nation." Upon his graduation with summa cum laude honors from Carey in 1961, Dr. Wheeler enrolled at Tulane University. It was at Carey that Dr. Wheeler met the love of his life, his "sweet Donna," Donna Rose Duck, of Bay Minette, Ala. During Donna's long battle with brain cancer, Dr. Wheeler never left her side, even though he was plagued by his own persistent health concerns. Dr. Wheeler's love of Carey Crusader baseball knew no bounds. A fan since his student days, he was a consistent and vocal supporter of not only the baseball team but all athletic teams at the university. Milton Wheeler Baseball Field, dedicated in 2006, is named in his honor. For his countless contributions to Carey Athletics, Dr. Wheeler was inducted into Carey's Athletic Hall of Fame earlier this year. Dr. Wheeler's love for travel also knew no bounds. He led over a hundred trips to Europe, many tours of the Holy Land and many other tours that included Australia, New Zealand, the Orient, the United States, Russia and areas of Latin America. He also was a visiting lecturer in Russian universities and was supportive of the Kindness Foundation which promotes study of the Bible in Russian schools. Dr. Wheeler was a charter member of the Rotary Club of Petal, joining when the club was formed on March 31, 1972. He was a Rotarian with perfect attendance, attending club meetings all over the world. He served in many offices and chairs throughout his years in Rotary, including governor of Rotary District 6840 from 1989-1990 and again from 2007-2008. He was awarded the Avenue of Service Citation from Rotary International in 1999-2000 and in 2013 received the Citation for Meritorious Service, one of only 50 awards given worldwide per year. He was a longtime member of First Baptist Church of Hattiesburg, where he was a deacon and Sunday school teacher. Dr. Wheeler was also the teacher on "Living Waters," the longest-running local television program, for 27 years.

    Most importantly, I want to thank one man- Dr. Milton Wheeler, a history professor at William Carey University.
Dr. Wheeler has been a passionate teacher of history for 50 years and is truly a walking encyclopedia when it comes to European travel, partly because he has led 96 tours to this continent but mainly due to his passion for the area and it's historical significance.     Beginning in February, I started having weekly lunch meetings with Dr. Wheeler at our restaurants. I traded soup for knowledge. The information he offered was worth 1,000 guidebooks and gallons of gumbo. He helps pilot our movements, even while we are here.     With such a hectic week, I'd like to focus on two events- the dinners in Olympia and Istanbul.     It was Dr. Wheeler who recommended the Hotel Europa in Olympia.
