Background:

This scholarship, in memory of Eleanor Wheler, is to assist students wishing to study music at the University of Prince Edward Island, and to recognize superior dedication and performance. Established by her friends, to whom she gave wisdom, inspiration, laughter and love, it is intended to honour the life of an outstanding woman. Eleanor Wheler lived 96 joyful years, 49 of the happiest in her beloved Windswept, her Fernwood, PEI home by the sea. There she loved to listen to the waves crashing against the cliffs or lapping against the shore; swam and walked along the shores, fields and roads, and enjoyed everything about the outdoors. Eleanor Wheler was a pioneer in Public Health Nursing who moved to Prince Edward Island to work with Mona Wislon in 1945. Born in Edgewood Park, Pittsburg on October 17, 1900, Eleanor Wheler graduated from Toronto General Hospital Nurses' Training in 1924, completed post-graduate Public Health Nursing in 1929 and a B.A. extra-murally and in evening classes from the University of Toronto in 1944. Public Health work in Ontario, 1929-39, often required skiing many miles to visit patients from the outpost denta l base in a railway car. Miss Wheler supervised the Public Health Demonstration Unit at The University of Toronto, 1939-44. Eleanor Wheler studied violin with Katherine Lee. Music and art were among her chief delights, and even after she became blind and could no longer read her music, listening to the Masters, and playing by ear gave her great pleasure. It is the hope of the founders that this scholarship will keep the spirit of Eleanor Wheler alive in beautiful music; that the winners will share her talent and love of music; and that it will bring as much joy to their lives and to the lives of those they touch.
