McKenna, a graduate of Pomona College and Harvard University, returned to Claremont in 1934 after realizing his passion lay not in English literature, but in the establishment of a college-- and was further prompted to do so with the passage of the GI Bill after WWII. When Mr. McKenna learned the federal funds would not come in time to finance the college, he decided to invest his own money for the initial budget, and was thus able to open the doors to Claremont Men’s College in 1946.
