McLean's years at Hamilton, 1910-1914. Elinas Delavan McLean was born on April 22, 1892, in Binghamton, NY. He graduated from Hamilton College in 1914 with a B. S.

In December of that year, he was injured so severely in a automobile accident that he never could walk unaided again.

Although his legs remained paralyzed, Mr. McLean excelled at archery and taught it at Rollins College in Winter Park, Fla., for several years. In 1923 he married Anne Huhuy. On October 11, 1937, Mr. McLean died as a direct result of the injuries he sustained during the War.
