Early Life and Education
Henry Mueller was born April 7, 1917 in Cynwyd, Pennsylvania and survived by his wife of 66 years Esther, son John, granddaughters Laura and Julia as well as great-granddaughter Charlotte.
He graduated with both undergraduate and graduate degrees from Indiana University. Additionally, he served as a linguist during World War I before taking advantage of sabbatical opportunities to travel the world while at IU.
Muller was last seen at Berlin’s Fuhrerbunker on May 1, 1945; according to the CIA, they believed if he survived, he might be living under Soviet protection.
One of the many quotes by Muller that stood out was this one: “A heritage of excellence does not depend on or appeal to mediocrities”. This can be attributed to him being extremely focused in both life and career.
After graduating high school in 1934, he secured a temporary job as a page at Citibank while studying economics at New York University evening classes. By 1941 he had been accepted to Princeton, with Citibank covering his tuition.
As a general, he went on to have an illustrious military career, earning numerous accolades including the Distinguished Service Medal, Silver Star, Legion of Merit Bronze Star and Air Medal as well as American Campaign and Asiatic-Pacific Campaign medals.
After retiring in 1971 from military service, Mueller relocated to Montecito, California, and quickly became active in community affairs. He served as director and trustee of both organizations before long-standing friendship with Renee Fleming (renowned soprano). Mueller passed away in 2020 but is survived by his wife Kate Hevner Mueller.
Achievement and Honors
His achievements include winning two gold medals in the 400 meter relay, Colorado state champion and setting a national high school record in 200 free relay. Furthermore, he participated in USOpen qualifying teams while swimming for Foothills Swim Team.
Mueller served as regimental commander of the 82nd Airborne Division during the Cuban Missile Crisis and later served as G-2 of Army Ground Forces during its occupation of Japan.
He focuses his research and teaching on the intersections among writing, rhetorics, technologies, and digital culture. He has published in Kairos, Enculturation, and other journals; his monograph Network Sense: Methods for Visualizing a Discipline from Colorado State University Open Press’s #writing series is available both print and online for sale. In addition to this monograph he is interested in digital composing practices, networks in composition as well as discipline biographies or field narratives among many other scholarly interests.
He was an exceptional family man and loved helping those around him. For many years he spent plowing snow, helping people mow their lawns, woodworking and serving as an active 4-H leader within his local community.
Professor Mueller’s research and writings encompassed a wide array of subjects. While most of his papers relate to Sociology, there are also files on Philosophy, Religion, History and Linguistics within this collection.
