Philip was a son of Zur Auston Leonard & Mazelle Kiser Leonard, and a brother of Harvey Kiser Leonard all of whom preceded him in death.

His accomplishments were numerous and a search of the internet brought many, many clues to the life and adventures of this remarkable man.

His speaker's profile from the American Program website:

"Philip Leonard, lecturer at the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C., is the most frequently requested art lecturer with the internationally acclaimed Smithsonian Resident Associates Program where has presented individual lectures, art history surveys and study days. Especially popular with clubs and general audiences, Leonard provides lively and informative slide presentations on English Country Houses, the History and Architecture of London, Victorian English Art and Architecture, Impressionism: Modern Life Subject Matter and Experience and on important artists, such as Paul Gauguin, Berthe Morisot and Claude Monet. He has graduate degrees from the University of Virginia and the University of Maryland and has attended the Attingham Summer School of the English Country House in England and the Victorian Society Summer School in London." - his topic: "Artful Bouquets: The Birth of Flower Painting in the Netherlands The British Country House Garden The Art of the Czars"

He was a charter member of the Gaston Lincoln Genealogical Society in North Carolina and in their June 2008 journal entitled "Footprints in Time", the current president, Robert C. Carpenter ended a memoriam to his long time friend by stating:

"If you knew Philip, you knew him as direct, opinionated, congenial, and also helpful. He loved to discuss, sometimes bordering on a good argument, and yet was also respectful.

Our Society and community have lost a giant with the passing of Philip Leonard. His accomplishments and contributions will remain as a testimony to quality research, diligence in research and collaboration.

I and the Society will miss Larry Philip Leonard."

Well said Robert, well said.
