- Early years
- Personal life
Oakman was born in Washington, D.C., and educated in that city's schools.
Oakman appeared in over 280 films between 1912 and 1948. In silent films, he was often a leading man. Among his leading ladies were Priscilla Dean, Kathlyn Williams, Colleen Moore and Annette Kellerman. By the time talkies came in, his career was in decline, and he often portrayed villains or henchman, and rarely had a leading role.
In 1932, he appeared alongside Buck Jones in Sundown Rider and John Wayne in Texas Cyclone.
From 1920 to 1926, Oakman was married to actress Priscilla Dean, his costar in Outside the Law (1920) and The Virgin of Stamboul (1920). Some years after their divorce, he married Mary Eloise Timothy.
He died in Van Nuys, California at the age of 59. Wheeler Oakman was interred at Pierce Brothers Valhalla Memorial Park in North Hollywood, California.
