Dr Edward Roy Bartels
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: 1926
Death: Jul. 11, 1960

Dr. Edward Roy Bartels, a 1944 graduate, was a four-sport star at Dubuque Senior High School, participating in wrestling, basketball, track and football. As a football player, he played all three years at Senior, helping the Rams to the Mississippi Valley Conference Championship in 1943. As a center for the team, he was selected co-captain, received Seniorís Gold Athletic Award, and was named first-team All State. Doctor Bartels received his B.S. degree from the University of Iowa in 1949 and graduated from the U.I. medical school in 1953. He died in 1960 at the age of 34.

The cold-blooded murder of the Dubuque physician and father of four led to the execution of Victor Harry Feguer.

Bartels was tricked into answering a call for help. Feguer, seeking a general practitioner who would be likely to carry morphine or demerol, chose his victim from the phone book. Bartels' name had been the first listed. Feguer's appeal was rejected by Harry Blackmun, then a federal appeals court judge in St. Louis and later a member of the United States Supreme Court.
