Edmond Stephen Meany (1862-1935) was a historian and professor of botany at the University of Washington in Seattle. He was also an alumnus of the school, having graduated as the valedictorian in 1885. He became the head of the Department of History in 1897 and was the head of the committee that selected the university's current location site in downtown Seattle. During the last 25 years of his life he amassed an extensive collection of material on early Washington pioneers. His papers are archived at UW.
