Where do you know Lee Meriwether from? Depending on what kind of TV you watched in the ‘60s and ‘70s you could know her from anything from Batman to Star Trek, Mission: Impossible, and Barnaby Jones. If you’re a fan of the pageant circuit you know that she was Miss America in 1955. She appeared on some of the most iconic shows of all time, with guest appearances on fan favorite programs stretching from the late ‘50s to the 2010s. We may not think about Lee Meriwether as one of the all time greats but this will change that because this is a woman that has not stopped working since the director called action on her first role.
