Henry Edwin McGrew was the second President of Pacific College from 1900 until 1907 when he resigned due to ill health. McGrew worked as president for only $800 per year and traveled extensively raising funds for the college. His main focus was paying off the college’s debt, a successful effort that resulted in a celebratory bonfire burning of the college mortgage in 1902.
