Born Allan George See in Mount Kisco, New York, the oldest of two children, born to Margaret (née Shea) See (1906-2004), who was a middle school dropout, who in turn worked for Reader’s Digest. He grew up in Pleasantville and studied acting at Ithaca College, graduating in 1952. His father, a gas station attendant, was a Chippewa (Ojibwa) Indian. After serving in the Air Force, he moved to New York City and worked at Radio City Music Hall while looking for acting work. At about this time he changed his name, drawing “Gavin” from a cerebral palsy victim in a TV drama, and “MacLeod” from his Ithaca drama coach, Beatrice MacLeod.
