Name of creator
The Young Men's Christian Association was first established in Saint John, New Brunswick, in 1854. It built up a library and organized public debates until its demise in 1860 or 1861. In 1867, with the support of a coalition of evangelical churches, a branch of the international association was established in Saint John. They met in various church halls and other buildings until 1873 when they completed their own building on Charlotte Street.
