The Leeson who taught saxophone at Ball State University for a long time
was named Cecil Leeson. I thought Dan Leeson might jump in and answer the
question concerning a possible relationship between the two of them, but
having asked Dan that question myself some time ago, I can tell you that
they are not related as far as they know.

I'm not aware of a possible relationship between Cecile Leeson and Cecil
Leeson, but it is an interesting possibility.
