Frederick Baldwin Leonard, A. M., M.D., was born in Sharon, Litch
field county, Conn., July 13, 1804. He was the son of Timothy and
Mary (Baldwin) Leonard. He was graduated from Yale college in
1824. He afterwards studied medicine and was in practice in 1835,
when he married Margaret Caroline Nichols, who died March 16, 1851, leaving seven children October 12, 1852, he married Ann Maria
Stewart. Dr. Leonard was a highly educated and accomplished man
and physician. He was a member of the Rensselaer County Medical
society since 1828 and its president in 1846 and 1847. He was professor of botany and zoölogy in the Rensselaer institute from 1845 to 1848. He had made extensive collections of plants and minerals. His plants were many of them in papers stored in a closet, and an ignorant servant used them for kindling fires for some time before the doctor discovered it, greatly to his sorrow and grief. He was a trustee of the institute from 1866 to 1869. He died in Lansingburgh February 9, 1872.
