CHARLES M. MCLEAN
Charles M. McLean (dates unknown) was a bookseller and publisher in Ohio. In 1919 he became a partner of Walter Pettibone, who had co-founded the Guiney-Pettibone Company, a bookstore in Dayton, Ohio in 1917. When McLean arrived, it became the Pettibone-McLean Company. The shop also published a small number of books. Pettibone-McLean remained in business until 1934, at which point McLean started his own bookshop.
