Background
Gavin MacLeod was born on February 28, 1931, as Allan George See in Mount Kisco, New York, the older of two children. MacLeod grew up in Pleasantville, New York, and studied acting at Ithaca College, graduating in 1952. After serving in the Air Force, MacLeod moved to New York City and found a job at Radio City Music Hall while looking for acting work. He changed his name while in New York City, drawing "Gavin" from a cerebral palsy victim in a TV drama, and "MacLeod" from his Ithaca drama coach, Beatrice MacLeod. MacLeod was nominated for five Academy Awards and is known for his roles in The Love Boat, The Mary Tyler Moore Show, McHale's Navy, and Kelly's Heroes.
