L.L. Bean and Boarding School

L.L. Bean and Boarding SchoolA little trivia as boarding school and preppy icon L.L. Bean celebrates its centennial.

Name the two boarding schools that Leon Leonwood Bean attended?

Bean spent a semester each at Hebron Academy and Kents Hill School– both in his native Maine.

Bean did not graduate from either, but he did take a business course at Kents Hill which looks to have had a certain effect.
