Frederick Brotherton Meyer
1847-1929
English Baptist clergyman. F.B. Meyer was born in London and
educated at Brighton College. Between 1870 and 1895 he held
several successful pastorates. Between the years 1872 and
1874 he met D.L. Moody and introduced him to the British
churches. During much of Meyer’s ministry he engaged in so-
cial work and temperance work. He headed a movement to close
saloons, was the force in closing nearly 500 immoral houses,
and labored for the reclamation of released prisoners. In
1904 to 1905 he served as president of the National
Federation of Free Churches, and thereafter was evangelist
for that organization, conducting missions in South Africa
and the Far East. For many years he was closely associated
with the Keswick Conferences. He died in his 82nd year.
