Neil Leonard
Neil Leonard, 70, died September 15 in Francestown, New Hampshire. Chairman of the board from 1946 to 1960, and a trustee for 36 years (he was made an honorary life trustee in 1966), he was praised as one who had 'done more than any other person now living to bring Colby to its present status on Mayflower Hill and its standing in the eyes of the public.' This citation, spoken by former president J. S. Bixler, accompanied an honorary LL.D. awarded Leonard in 1960. He was a member of the Class of 1921.
