Miller Hall unveils portrait of MBA graduate

The Edward T. Tokar Graduate Wing of Alan B. Miller Hall now houses a new portrait of alumnus Ed Tokar, MBA ’71, in recognition of his leadership contribution to the MBA program at the Raymond A. Mason School of Business. The portrait was created in conjunction with the official naming of the Mason School’s graduate wing in honor of Tokar. The naming was made official with the installation of bronze lettering at the wing entrance and a glass plaque in the hallway, while the portrait hangs in a gold frame down the hall from the entrance.

“This is the first time the MBA program has a distinct identity in a great building that is truly permanent,” Tokar said.Ed Tokar and wife with painting

The oil on canvas portrait was commissioned by American artist Nancy Fleming Harris, who has painted other prominent figures on the walls of Miller Hall, including Chip Mason and Alan Miller.

“It is inspiring to see MBA alumni giving back to the program,” said Larry Pulley, Dean of the Raymond A. Mason School of Business. “We are eternally indebted to Ed and his gracious contribution and hope to continue honoring MBA alumni, like Ed, in our building.”
