    • Leon L. Hale was educated in the common schools of Westbrook, at the Pride's Corner High School, and at Gray's Business College, Portland, Me. After obtaining a business education he first became employed in the large dry-goods establishment of Jordan, Marsh & Co., of Boston, but soon returned to Maine, where in June, 1875, he was engaged by Royal Leighton, of Woodford's, Deering, as book-keeper and cashier. This merchant then held the appointment of Postmaster at Woodford's, wherefore young Hale was duly sworn in as Assistant Postmaster, assuming full charge of the office, and conducting it in a satisfactory manner to the public for one year. Resigning his position at the end of that time he entered into the employ of Samuel W. Wilson, who was then, in 1876, about to start the first store in Deering Centre, a new and rapidly growing section of the town. Mr. Wilson being a man well advanced in years and without a knowledge of the business, his clerk became general manager of this enterprise, and was successful in building up a large and lucrative business, which in 1877 was sold to other parties.

      In November, 1877, a few months after his marriage, Mr. Hale commenced the study of dentistry with Dr. Samuel A. Packard, of Portland, Me., at his office, corner of Temple and Middle Streets, remaining with him until July, 1879. He then removed from Woodford's, Me., to Boothbay Harbor, and opened an office, being the first dentist to permanently locate in that thriving town, where he at once began the study of medicine with Dr. Charles W. Price. During his stay there of one year, in connection with his practice and medical studies, Dr. Hale was reporter for the Boothbay Register, and wrote occasional continued articles for that paper. In 1880 he removed to Boston, and, opening an office on Kneeland Street, there practiced dentistry, in 1882 removing with his family again to Westbrook, Me., for the purpose of entering the Bowdoin Medical School at Brunswick. In 1883 he returned to Boston, and entered the College of Physicians and Surgeons, graduating with honors from this institution in May, 1884. He immediately opened an office on Tremont Street, where he practiced until he removed to Chebeague Island, having in the mean time received the appointment of Superintendent of Essex Street Dispensary, now known as the North End Dispensary and Hospital. In 1886 Dr. Hale came to Casco Bay, and settled on Chebeague Island, where he has built up a large and successful practice, being highly esteemed and popular with all classes.

      In politics Dr. Hale affiliates with the Democratic party. He is a man of broad views on the leading questions of the day, including religious subjects. Socially, he is a member of Falmouth Encampment, No. 11, Independent Order of Odd Fellows, of Portland, Me.; member of the Alumni of the College of Physicians and Surgeons, Boston, Mass. ; and Fellow of the Maine Academy of Medicine and Science.
