Mervyn William Lee (born 18 August 1920) was an Australian politician.
Early life and war service
Born in Broadford, Victoria, he was educated at Kingswood College in Melbourne before becoming a Commonwealth public servant. After serving in World War II 1941-46, he became a drapery and hardware merchant. He played Australian rules football for Acton in the Canberra Australian National Football League and while captain of Acton in 1947 won the Mulrooney Medal.
In 1966, he was elected to the Australian House of Representatives as the Liberal member for Lalor, defeating long-serving Labor member Reg Pollard. He held the seat until 1969, when a redistribution gave Labor a notional six-percent majority. Believing this made Lalor impossible to hold, Lee unsuccessfully contested the nearby seat of Bendigo.
