Amos Niven Wilder
(1895–1993)
American poet, minister, and theology professor. He studied two years at Oberlin College (1913–1915), transferring thereafter to Yale—where he earned his B.A., B.D., and Ph.D. (by 1920), but only after volunteering in the Ambulance Field Service and enlisting in the U.S. Field Artillery (as a corporal) during World War I.
