McLeod and Tyler’s gift provides $1.5 million to the Earl Gregg Swem Library — the largest gift in the library’s history — and $1 million to the Mason School of business. The business school’s future facility, Alan B. Miller Hall, will include library space named in honor of McLeod.

“I grew up in a house packed with books,” explained McLeod, who
