Rev. Walter Buehler SM was born in St. Louis, Missouri, son of Henry John and Mary Anna Mueth Buehler. He was the oldest of 11 children; Margaret, Robert, Eleanor, Edward, Marian, Henry, Alberta Francis, Francis Gregory, Raymond and Bernice.

He was ordained in June 1934 with the Sisters of Mary, a Catholic Religious order of Brothers and Priests.

From 1954 to 1961, he served as the President of St. Mary's University, San Antonio's oldest Catholic university. In this position, he established the University's first Board of Directors; the vice presidencies for academics, development and finances; and the Office of Civic (Public) Relations. He separated the offices of University President and Director of the Marianist Community, which up to that time had been the same person. He added Marian Hall for boarders and the Marianist Residence, and awarded the first honorary doctorate degrees.
