Mueller is of German, English and Scottish descent. His paternal great-grandfather, Gustave A. Mueller, was a prominent physician in Pittsburgh, whose father August C. E. Mueller had immigrated to the United States in 1855, from Pomerania, Germany. On his mother's side he is a great-grandson of the railroad executive William Truesdale.
