Response to a last thought

 
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

Item No. 121

An older edition of the Register is available on line:

Register of the commissioned and warrant officers of the United States Naval Reserve Force
By Bureau of Naval Personnel, Naval Reserve, United States. Navy Dept. Bureau of Navigation, United States, Navy
Published by G.P.O., 1922
Original from the New York Public Library

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).
