Leo Van Munching, Jr. was born on April 7, 1926 in Rotterdam, Holland. Following his military career from 1944-1946, Mr. Van Munching enrolled at the University of Maryland at College Park, and graduated in 1950 from the College of Business and Management.

After graduation, Leo began his career with Van Munching & Co., the sole importers of Heineken and Amstel Light. He rose to the position of President and CEO, and retired in December 1993.

"This gift to the Business School is my way of repaying the University of Maryland for the warm welcome and fine education it provided me and many other veterans immediately following the end of World War II. I like what the University of Maryland stands for, and I think anyone in a position to help higher education should do so."

Van Munching Hall was dedicated on October 16, 1993 in appreciation to Leo Van Munching, Jr. for his support to the Maryland Business School.
