Edmond Meany could easily be called Washington State's original Renaissance man. Meany was born in Michigan in 1862 and came west to Seattle with his family in 1877. He enrolled at the University of Washington and graduated Valedictorian of his class in 1885. He later received his masterís degree. He worked in ther newspaper industry, served two terms in the legislature and became a professor history and forestry. At the age of 50 Meany took up climbing. In 1908 he joined and became president of the fledgling Mountaineers and served in that position until his death in 1935. Meany climbed Rainier as well as the stateís other four volcanoes and Mount Olympus. He was a dedicated historian with a strong interest in Washington State. He amassed a collection of historic documents and photographs and tirelessly lectured and wrote many books and articles on Northwest history. In 1916 his book, Mount Rainier, A Record of Exploration, was published which featured interviews and accounts of early explorers of the mountain, as well as a comprehensive section on place names. It is still considered among the best authoritative sources on Rainier.
