Sidney MacLeod (often called Sid) was born in 1933 in Chicago, Illinois. He is the oldest of three children and the only boy. He earned his M.S.S. at Saint Mary’s College in Winona, Minnesota and his M.F.A. at Catholic University in Washington, D.C. After graduate school he was drafted into the U.S. Army where he served two years on several domestic military bases. He began working at La Salle in 1959. In 1961 he married his wife, Mary Jane. They have four children (three sons and one daughter). He continues to work at La Salle full-time. When he retires he looks forward to travelling with his wife.
According to his biography on the La Salle University Communications Department website (5/6/13), "If something isn’t working in the Communication Center, Chicago native Sid MacLeod is usually there to repair, replace, create, paint, or take it apart. When not maintaining everything in the Communication Center, Sid is a huge Broadway fan and he also enjoys gardening, cooking, and cleaning. A Lindback Distinguished Teaching award winner and a Distinguished Lasallian Educator, Sid teaches Media Production. Sid feels that it’s important that students are able to master the equipment, technology, and procedures for successful film, video, and audio work. Sid’s many contributions to La Salle and its students will be forever remembered with the Sid MacLeod Endowed Fund."
