States: Oklahoma: Nowata
Dr Wheeler's son, Johnny, was my best friend in grade school. I was at their house often while living there and also a few times after moving from Nowata to Tulsa in 1950. Dr Wheeler's wife was named Amy and they lived in a big 2-story house at 112 S Pecan, which I believe is now 120 or 122 S Pecan. Johnny was adopted and also had an adopted brother named Brooks. Dr Wheeler ran the Clinic on Pine St while I lived there and Johnny and I dropped by there most every day after school. My Mom tells me of the time in 1939, before she was married, that Dr Wheeler drove 12 miles from Nowata to Alluwe to treat her for strep throat by giving her a new drug, Sulpha(Sulfa?). She was cured very quickly.
