at the age of 16. Within three years, Dr. Merrifield earned a degree in

Despite his degree in agriculture and love for the land, Dr. Merrifield’s
calling proved to be dentistry. In 1946, he graduated from the Baylor College

He opened his first practice in Chickasha. After three years in practice,
Dr. Merrifield enrolled in the University of Missouri at Kansas City to

practiced two days a week for 25 years.
Levern and Jan Marlene McVicker, a Duncan native, were united in marriage
in 1967. They established a ranch in Osage County and concentrated on raising
wheat and Angus cattle.
Dr. Merrifield was in private practice for 50 years. During that time,
he earned an international reputation as an expert in the field of orthodontics.
Among the first to recognize his talent was Dr. Charles Tweed. His Tucson-based
Tweed Foundation taught the “advanced edgewise” technique to licensed orthodontists.
After Dr. Merrifield completed the Tweed Foundation course, Dr. Tweed tapped
him as an instructor and later as the Foundation’s co-director. Upon Dr.
Tweed’s death, Dr. Merrifield was named as the Foundation’s course director

lecture schedule including lecturing twice a year in Tucson at the two-week

to advance orthodontic care.

of contribution to the orthodontic profession.
In the late 1950s, Dr. Merrifield began a home-based Ponca City business
named for his mother to assist her with living expenses. Lee Laboratories,
Inc., which manufactures orthodontic headgear, has grown into a business
with a worldwide market. Dr. Merrifield’s J-Hook Directional Force Headgear,

organized the First National Bank of Tonkawa, which he served as president

privacy of a comfortable apartment.”
Nelsie was recently recognized as one of the earliest living graduates
