Angus Lloyd MacLean, Jr. '53
Year Inducted: 1974
Angus Lloyd MacLean, Jr. ’53 won 34 of 36 matches during his four-year wrestling career at Brown, 12 of them on pins. He came to Brown with good credentials as Maryland state champion. Wrestling at 137, MacLean had a perfect 10-0 record for the undefeated freshman team, a team that numbered Yale and Harvard among its victims. The 10-0 mark included five falls. During the next three years, Coach Ralph Anderton’s Brown wrestling teams were 22-4, and MacLean was a key figure in this surge. His sophomore team was 8-1, losing only to Yale, with MacLean posting a personal 8-1 mark. The 1951-52 season will long be remembered as the one in which Brown first defeated Yale and Harvard in the same season. The Bears were 7-2 as a team that year and MacLean had a perfect 9-0 record. The Bruin grappler from Gilman School in Baltimore ended his career with a 7-1 mark as a senior. Coach Anderton ’30 has vivid memories of MacLean. “Angus was hard as nails, had quick reactions, and, perhaps most of all, he was a true competitor. Angus MacLean hated to lose. Once he took the mat with an opponent he had one thing, and only one thing, in mind – victory.” MacLean was co-captain of the 1952-53 team with his fellow star, Dana Eastham. He was vice-president of Alpha Delta Phi. After two years in the Marine Corps as a lieutenant, MacLean taught English at St. Albans Boys’ School in Washington, D.C., before moving to the West Coast, where he is manager of Coldwell Banker & Co., San Jose, CA, one of the nation’s largest real estate firms.
