Leigh W. MacQueen

Jamie McMahan, Portrait Artist
Citing his unparalleled contributions to the school and his legacy of educational excellence, the Alumni Executive Board voted Mr. Leigh W. MacQueen the subject for the inaugural portrait in 2005. MacQueen came to MUS in 1961 to teach science and direct the physical education program. In his 37 years at the school, he served as teacher, academic dean, Upper School principal, and associate headmaster. He designed the school seal and co-founded the Red and Blue Society. After officially retiring, MacQueen returned to organize and maintain the MUS Archives.
He is remembered for the long hours he spent helping the school and individual students, his detailed pursuit of perfection, and the standard of excellence he helped impart throughout all of the school's curriculum and activities.
