One of the few glimpses we have into to Professor Wisebottom's past comes when time travelers Flavoura Filigree and Emily von Schnagel travel from 2002 first to 1945, then to 1948 New Mexico. Stranded for a short time when their craft is damaged, the pair find lodging at a boarding house only to discover that another family of tenants include the Wisebottoms. Father William is a civilian scientist working for the United States Army, often bringing home top secret research plans and showing them to his son, Otto, who in turn uses his gifted intelligence (bestowed upon him but the yet-undiscovered Inventor's Gene) to improve on the designs.
Because of the length of time between now and 1948, combined with the fact that Prof. Wisebottom has otherwise not mentioned his parents until now, it is safe to assume that the elder Dr. Wisebottom has been deceased for a significant number of years.
