Following graduation in 1940, Mr. McLeod studied economics at the University of Indiana. In 1941 he received his M. A. (Master of Arts). Later that year he returned to Brandon College to teach economics and sociology. From 1941 until 1944 he also acted as the Resident Master. He remained at Brandon College for three years. Following the election of Tommy Douglas as Premier of Saskatchewan, Dr. McLeod was employed in a variety of senior positions in the Saskatchewan civil service. In 1952, McLeod was named the Dean of Commerce at the University of Saskatchewan, Regina Campus. In 1961, he served as the Chief Consultant (Ford Foundation) to the Turkish Government. In 1962, McLeod was the supervisor of an eight man team advising the Iranian government on Economic Planning Activities. He has also served as a Special Advisor in Public Administration and Higher Education for the Canadian Development Agency. In 1963, he was the chairman of the Saskatchewan Royal Commission on Taxation. McLeod accepted the position of Dean of the College of Arts and Science, Regina Campus at the University of Saskatchewan on May 15, 1964. In May 1965, he became Vice-principal of the University of Saskatchewan, Regina Campus. McLeod has a Ph.D. in Government and Economics from Harvard.

Scope and content

Thomas McLeod's collection consists of a paper written in 1995 entitled "S.J. McKee of Brandon College: A Biographical Note on a Man and an Institution." This paper is a brief history of Brandon College and S.J. McKee's role in the formation of it. Beginning with the foundation of the short-lived Canada Baptist College, as well as the foundation of the Canadian Literary Institute, McLeod traces the history of Baptists and higher education. The paper is a fairly good guide to researchers wanting to know a bit of the background behind Brandon College. The bibliography in the back also gives researchers several ideas on where to look for information.
