Meredith, Thomas (7 July 1795-13 Nov. 1850), minister and editor, was born in Warwick Township, Bucks County, Pa., the son of John, a prosperous farmer, and Charlotte Hough Meredith.
Meredith was instrumental in preventing a disastrous cleavage in the Baptist denomination in NorthCarolina after Alexander Campbell, founder of the Disciples of Christ, made a trip through the state.
Meredith College has two portraits of Meredith; one, copied by his granddaughter, Ada Tolson Ralls, from a portrait by Anne Peale, hangs in the boardroom of the presidential suite in the Livingston Johnson Administration Building.
