After returning home and leaving formal duty in the Marines (because of Leon’s loyalty and love for the Marine Corps as well as his patriotism, he remained an active reserve Officer, reaching the rank of Colonel before retiring from the Marine Reserves), Leon returned to the University of Virginia where he received an M. S. degree in plant embry- ology. He then continued his graduate education at the University of Texas where he received his Ph.D. in plant physiology. After this, Leon joined the developing fac- ulty of biochemistry of the UGA in 1960 as a postdoc- toral researcher working on bioluminescence—a pioneer- ing step as he was in fact the first postdoctoral researcher at the UGA!
