    First of all, your list covers several decades. There were obviously a lot more members than this, and I doubt all became "people of power".

    Second, to get into Yale requires high standards and money. Thus, most were not starting from scratch, but already had powerful friends and relatives.

    You had to be recommended to get into the club. This too, filtered the membership to the rich and powerful.
