“We are all on the same team, America’s team, and we depend on individuals like Fred Meyer, and he never lets us down.…In a free country like ours, history is determined by the activists…Fred, you’ve done more than your fair share…We are proud of you and grateful for the gusto you put into everything you do.”
 
– Ronald Reagan

FRED MEYER

Founding Trustee of The Cooper Institute
 

Fred Meyer, founding trustee of The Cooper Institute, was a Harvard educated engineer and a fixture on the Texas political scene for decades who held a passion for adventure. An avid runner who was always on the move, Fred logged tens of thousands of miles but it has been said that his favorite distance was the short length between himself and others.

As a successful business man who helped build the Tyler Corp. into a Fortune 500 company in Dallas, there were always two constants in Fred’s life: His love for his family and The Cooper Institute. Fred was a guiding hand for many years before stepping into the Chief Executive Officer role in 2007, a position he held until shortly before his passing on September 24, 2012. The way Fred lived his life, with a commitment to healthy living and stewardship, is one to be celebrated and inspires the important work done at The Institute every day.

In his honor, The Meyer Society, which includes The Fred Meyer Planned Giving Society and The Meyer Lecture Series, was founded as an opportunity for others to follow in Fred’s footsteps of leaving the world a better place.
