1 Review
Malcolm Carnegie McKenna (1930- ) was born into an illustrious heritage of early Americans who arrived in and helped settle Pennsylvania before the American Revolution. One ancestral family, the DeHavens, owned Gulph Mills which was Washington's headquarters Valley Forge. A number of Malcolm's ancestors were involved with the iron and, later, steel founding industry and were closely associated with Andrew Carnegie. Malcolm's father, Donald Carnegie McKenna, helped found Claremont McKenna College in California. It is one of the Claremont Colleges. McKenna descendants live in California and New York.
