Fiddling around with Google, I've discovered (I think) that Wiley was from Missouri:
- claimed as one of Livingston County's WWI veterans:
- a biographical sketch at the Western Historical Manuscripts Collection at Missouri State Historical Society, Columbia MO

An older edition of the Register is available on line:

This edition (page 48) lists him as a Lieutenant (ranking from 1 Jul 1920) appointed from Missouri.
And he became an associate dean of engineering at UC-Berkley and passed while holding that position
And his wife was the sponsor of USS Wiley DD-597, launched 25 September 1944 note that she is listed as the wife of Vice Admiral Herbert V. Wiley (although in 1944 he was still a captain).
