Our Far-Flung Alumni: Henry Leavell

February 5, 2012

He’ll turn 93 this coming March 9, but he didn’t graduate from Earlham until 1956.  He did a number of things, including serve in World War II, before coming to Earlham.

Henry Leavell, a jazz afficianado, is honored in today’s Richmond Palladium Item in its series honoring notable residents of the city during Black History Month.
