George L. McLean ’55

George L. McLean ’55, January 26, 2002, in Washington. McLean studied psychology at Reed, eventually earning a BA in journalism from Seattle University in 1970. He moved to Sacramento, California, and worked as a freelance editor and writer, and later became the chief technical publications editor for the U.S. Navy in Keyport, Washington. George retired in 1987 and did freelance writing. He was listed in Who’s Who in the West, Who’s Who in Aerospace, Who’s Who in the World, and in Personalities of the West and Midwest, and was a member of the Naval Undersea Warfare Museum Foundation. George said of his time at Reed that the education—in particular the "humanities regimen"—provided him with the basis he needed to work in the field of journalism. He had one son.
