Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Leonidas Lent Hamline (born 1797 in Burlington, Connecticut, died 1865) was an American Methodist Episcopal bishop and a lawyer. He is the eponym of Hamline University in St. Paul, Minnesota. Hamline studied for the ministry, but afterward studied law, and practiced for a while in Ohio. He became a preacher in the Methodist church in 1830. In 1844, when the Methodist church divided over slavery, he was a member of the General Conference, the church's legislative body, and drew up the plan of separation. He provided US$25,000 of his own money to launch a school, which became Hamline University. A statue of the bishop, sculpted by the late Professor of Art Michael Price, stands on campus. A number of his sermons are given in the Works of L. L. Hamline, D. D., edited by Rev. F. G.Hibbard, D. D., (two volumes, 1869).
