Amos Niven Wilder
(1895–1993)
Amos Wilder was an 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.

Some or all works by this author are in the public domain in the United States because they were published before January 1, 1923. They may be copyrighted outside the U.S. (see Help:Public domain). However, works published before 1923 may be in the public domain in countries where they would ordinarily be copyrighted (due to the term of 70 years [or less] after the author's death having not yet expired) but whose legislature has waived copyright by accepting the rule of the shorter term.
