Hoyt Henry Wheeler.

Hoyt Henry Wheeler (August 30, 1833 – November 19, 1906) was a United States federal judge.

Born in Chesterfield, New Hampshire, Wheeler read law in 1859 and entered private practice in Jamaica, Vermont from 1859 to 1867. He was a member of the Vermont House of Representatives in 1867, and of the Vermont State Senate from 1868 to 1869. He was a judge on the Vermont Supreme Court from 1869 to 1877.

On March 15, 1877, Wheeler was nominated by President Rutherford B. Hayes to a seat on the United States District Court for the District of Vermont vacated by David Allen Smalley. Wheeler was confirmed by the United States Senate on March 16, 1877, and received his commission the same day. He retired on September 30, 1906, and died less than two months later in Brattleboro, Vermont.
