Some of PMA / PMC's more famous former students include:

Cecil B. DeMille

"Cecil B. DeMille attended PMC from 1896 to 1898. Apparently, he attended for free in exchange for the education his mother provided the daughter of Colonel Charles Hyatt, PMC's president. She had a girls boarding school in New Jersey. He received an honorary degree in 1931 from PMC."
