      Edward R. McLean
      Retired DuPont Executive

      Died on July 5, 2008, in Greenville, DE, at the age of 91.

      He was born in Elizabeth, NJ, on July 11, 1916. He graduated from Princeton Univer sity with a degree in chemical engineering. While in college, he played varsity football and was an A11-American lacrosse midfielder for the 1937 National Championship Team. Edward joined the DuPont Company after graduation. During World War II he was assigned to Australia, where he oversaw a factory that manufactured gunpowder for the Allies. After the war he returned to the States to work in a variety of capacities for DuPont. He traveled extensively to South America, Mexico and Europe while serving in the International Department. He retired from DuPont in 1978 to pursue his life-long passion for woodworking. He was a master craftsman who reproduced period American antiques and conserved museum-quality furniture, running his business well into his eighties. The furniture he made was and still is in high demand locally. He was also an avid gardener with a keen interest in trees and shrubs - especially his beloved rhododendrons. He served on the Board of Trustees for the Winterthur Museum during the restoration of its gardens. A fitness devotee his whole life, Edward maintained his college weight well into his 90s. Edward married Nancy Beyea in Wilmington in 1944. They were married for 61 years. She died in 2005.

      He is survived by 2 sons, Edward McLean, Jr. of Madison, NJ, and Kevin McLean of Unionville, PA; 2 daughters, Jeanne McLean Schmitt of St. Louis, MO, and Margo McLean of New York City; and 5 grandchildren. His close companion, Jean Lewis, also survives him.

      A memorial service will be held at Christ Church in Greenville, DE, on Saturday, July 12, at 11 am. A reception will follow in the Parish House. Interment will be private.

      Donations can be made in Edward's name to a charity of your choice.
