Clan MacLennan USA

Our association is the United States branch of the worldwide Clan MacLennan association.

In 1978, Ronald George MacLennan became the 34th Chief of Clan MacLennan.  A few years after Ronald became Chief, the Clan MacLennan USA Association came into being.  The new association had convenors all over the United States, and they would go to various Scottish games in order to represent MacLennan.

On the East coast, Red McLendon was a convenor in North Carolina and in Georgia.  As was Woodie Woodward in Virginia.  Donald Waugh was an active convenor with the games in Florida.  On the West coast, John MacLennan was our earliest and most active convenor, living first in California and then in Nevada.

Between the two coasts, our early convenors were Mike MacLennan in Texas and Jack MacLennan in Illinois.  They represented our clan in McLennan County, Texas and Chicago, Illinois respectively.

These early pioneers ably represented our Clan and organized the beginnings of our association.  They were joined by many others who supported their work and carried it forward to our present time.  Now that the internet has become integral to so many of our lives, we are yet again moving toward improved communication with our new Clan MacLennan USA webpage.
