Into the Silence excerpt – 758 Wheeler, E.D.

Hello, Bill:

Happy New Year to you!

Attached is an extract from a book I am currently reading. There are some paragraphs about one of our grads from the RMC Class of 1907, starting at the middle of page 229. I was fascinated by this finding, particularly since Wheeler was also a member of Mallory’s expedition to conquer Mt. Everest in 1922. The author of the book is a Canadian and lives in B.C.

I thought it may make interesting reading for an e-Veritas article (suitable edited of course and citing the book as a source). I’m not sure if the two Wheelers from Nfld who graduated with numbers 19290 and 19777 are descendents of E.D. Wheeler. It may be worth checking out.

Regards,
