He was an alumnus of the university, having graduated as the valedictorian of his class in 1885. Meany also earned a Master of Science from the University of Washington in 1899, and a Master of Letters from the University of Wisconsin in 1901.

From 1906 until his death, he served as managing editor of the Washington Historical Quarterly (renamed the Pacific Northwest Quarterly the year after his death). From 1908 until his death, he also served as president of the Mountaineers, a hiking and climbing club.
