Namesake Information

Meredith Mathews was Branch Executive for our East Madison YMCA from 1957 through 1965.  That year, he was named the first African American Pacific Region Associate Executive for the YMCA of the USA.  He retired from the YMCA in 1976 after 39 years of service. The branch was renamed in his honor in 1993 after a major renovation and expansion project. Meredith passed away in the late 1990s, but he still has family in the Seattle area.  In fact, last spring his grandson was honored with a YMCA Black Achievers Scholarship to attend college.
