WOODRUFF, Doctor Merrill Emerson, O.D., M.A., PhD.
(February 3, 1925-May 8, 2005)
After a long illness, Emerson WOODRUFF of Waterloo, passed away at Chateau Gardens, Elmira on May 8, 2005.
Merrill Emerson WOODRUFF was born in Medicine Hat, Alberta, Canada. After completing high school, he served in the Royal Canadian Air Force. He was discharged in 1945 with the rank of Flying Officer, and soon after began his optometric studies at the College of Optometry of Ontario. When Doctor WOODRUFF graduated in 1950, he received the J.C. Thompson Memorial award for highest achievement in theoretical optometry.
Doctor WOODRUFF practiced optometry in West Lorne and Blenheim, Ontario from 1950 to 1962. He was also an active member of the Ontario Association of Optometrists. He served as the local society president and later as vice-president of the Ontario Association of Optometrists. In the early 1960s, Doctor WOODRUFF was a co-author and presenter of the Ontario Association of Optometrists' brief to the Royal Commission on Health Services in Canada.
In 1963, Doctor WOODRUFF began his graduate studies at Indiana University. In the first year of his PhD program in physiological optics, he authored a position paper entitled 'The Effective Utilization of Optometrists within the Programs of the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare' for the American Optometric Association. While completing his PhD studies, Doctor WOODRUFF was appointed as a lecturer in optometry at Indiana University. In 1966, he became an Assistant Professor.
In 1967, Doctor WOODRUFF accepted the posts of Associate Professor of Optometry and Director of Clinics at the School of Optometry, University of Waterloo. In 1967, he was co-author of the University's brief to the Ontario Government's Committee on the Healing Arts in Ontario.
As clinic Director, Doctor WOODRUFF became part of a faculty team that introduced several innovative concepts (such as mobile clinics and satellite clinics) to clinical teaching. Some programs focused on geriatric care and particularly on improving refractive care of infants and children. This area was the subject of Doctor WOODRUFF's Doctoral dissertation. Clinics were operated in certain Caribbean Islands, throughout much of northern Ontario, and in New Brunswick and Manitoba. In northern Ontario, the visual problems of several thousand Cree Indian children were attended to in these clinics.
Doctor WOODRUFF taught environmental optics, which relates visual abilities and vocational and avocational activities. He also taught a variety of clinical and theoretical subjects including Geometric Optics, Visual Physiology, Children's Vision Care, Ocular Pathology, Anatomy of the Visual Apartus, and Clinical Pathology. From 1975 to 1981, Doctor WOODRUFF served as Director of the School of Optometry at the University of Waterloo.
Over the years, Doctor WOODRUFF has lectured to numerous societies on a broad range of clinical and theoretical aspects of vision care. He has testified as an expert witness for the Indiana and Wisconsin State Boards and for several Canadian Royal Commissions. He also served as a consultant to the Ministry of health of New Brunswick.
Doctor WOODRUFF has been a member of the Graduate Studies Committee, Faculty of Science, and Graduate Officer for Waterloo's School of Optometry. He is a Fellow of the American Academy of Optometry, a member of the American Optometric Association, the Canadian Association of Optometrists, the Ontario Association of Optometrists, Sigma Xi, and the Association for Research in Ophthalmology. Doctor WOODRUFF was appointed to the Waterloo Regional Health Planning Council and later became Chairman of the Waterloo District Health Council.
Doctor WOODRUFF's academic excellence was widely acknowledged. In addition to being the recipient of many academic awards, he received scholarships and research grant awards of over $150,000. He retired from the University of Waterloo in 1990.
He was a deeply loved and loving husband to his wife Doris, his daughters, Elaine CADELL and partner Greg CORNFORTH, Ann SIMPSON and husband David, Susan WOODRUFF and husband Alan ISRAEL. Grandchildren, Katherine BUSSE, Emma and Ned SIMPSON, Emily, Evan and Eric ISRAEL. Great-granddaughter Grace TAILOR/TAYLOR. Loving brother of Elnor McNAUGHTON and husband Findlay, David WOODRUFF and his wife Joyce, Cheryl WILKIE and husband Ralph.
