McCaw, a successful businessman and philanthropist, attended CC two years, leaving after the death of his father to focus on the family business. With his brothers, he built McCaw Communications into the 20th largest cable company in the country. Operating in the Pacific Northwest and Alaska, they were attracted to the possibilities of wireless communications, and the cable business became a platform to enter cellular communications. In 1994, they sold the company to AT&T, and the company is now AT&T Wireless. McCaw also is the co-chair of Talaris Institute, a nonprofit organization with the mission of supporting parents and caregivers in raising socially and emotionally healthy children.
