Mr. Ed Meagher

Ed Meagher was born on January 6, 1926. At the age of ten, he entered Loyola’s Junior Preparatory class, the start of a fifty-five year association with Loyola as a student, athlete, teacher, coach, administrator, alumni director and friend. Mr. Meagher was a big proponent and organizer of intramural sports at Loyola. He realized the multitude of benefits associated with house league sports, including chances for socialization, reduction of stress which leads to greater academic performance, and the opportunity for students to build character, self control and a positive self-image. It is a legacy that continues today with his son, Mr. Richard Meagher, who is the current Commissioner of Intramural Sports at Loyola.
