Leake Hall

120 McMechen St

Leake Hall was named for Eugen W. "Bud" Leake, whom was president of the Maryland Institute in 1963. Among his many accomplishments, he established the LeRoy E. Hoffberger School of Painting and the Mount Royal School of Art, and helped the institute become a fully accredited college.

In 1963, Maryland Institute selected a Yale-trained painter, former Navy Captain Eugene W. "Bud" Leake to become president. His accomplishments include the addition of the Mount Royal Station building to MICA's campus, the establishment of the LeRoy E. Hoffberger School of Painting and the Mount Royal School of Art, two flagship MFA programs, the recruitment of eventual director of LeRoy E. Hoffberger School of Painting Grace Hartigan onto the faculty, the hiring of the first full-time liberal arts faculty, the tripling of enrollment numbers, and the official transition from an institute to a fully accredited college. This residence hall was named in his honor, and was constructed along North Avenue.
