Scope & Content:
Although Wiley often travelled in comfort and luxury with carriers such as Cunard Lines in the 1920s that was not always the case. Robert Sheldon Wiley served honorably as a Second Lieutenant in the Phillipine Scouts during World War One, and resigned fully from the military in 1920. His experience in the armed forces allowed him to understand the potential of the export business, and made him a well–informed and cultured export executive.
