Akey, Jr., Arthur C. who is successfully engaged in the practice of dentistry at Merrill, was born at March Rapids, Wis., June 28, 1896, son of Arthur and Mary (COLLINS) AKEY. Both the parents were born in the United States, the father in 1874 and the mother in 1871. They settled at March Rapids after their marriage, removing from there to Marathon City in 1903. They are now living in Merrill, the father being manager of the Ford garage. Arthur C. AKEY, Jr. attended the grade and high schools of Marathon City, and in 1916 entered the dental department of Marquette University, graduating from that institution with the class of 1919. He first established himself in practice in Milwaukee, but in Novmeber, 1922, came to Merrill and opened a fine office in the Citizens National Bank building at the corner of East Main and Mill streets. He is building up an excellent practice here and already has a wide reputation locally for skillful and honest work. His office equipment is the best that money can buy, and he is one of the rising professional men of the city. Dr. AKEY'S church membership is with the St. Francis Xavier Congregation. Fraternally he is a member of Merrill Council No. 1133 of the Knights of Columbus and Lodge No. 696 of the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks, and he is well liked and has a very wide circle of friends here.
