According to his obituary, Leon Marion Nad was born in Houston, and graduated from Rice University. “He received a master's degree in business administration from the University of Pennsylvania and taught there for three years. In 1951, he joined the accounting firm of Ernst and Whinney.”
In 1956, he moved to Price Waterhouse, where he quickly climbed the corporate ladder, becoming a partner in 1964, and later the national director of technical tax services, and associate vice chairman for tax consulting.Through his work, Leon became a national expert on taxes, and “often testified before Congress on tax policy issues.” He remained with the firm until his retirement in 1988.
Another family member featured in the collection, Leon’s father Irving was a Legacy Society Member at the Evelyn Rubenstein Jewish Community Center, creating the Irving Nad Memorial Bible Program Fund, which sponsors the annual program of Bible study for seniors.
