Leslie C. Wead, born in Malone February 1, 1851, was a graduate of Franklin Academy and Dartmouth College. He
was admitted to the bar in 1873, and engaged in practice at Malone until 1890. He was also closely identified with
a number of manufacturing and other commercial enterprises, and never lost opportunity to suggest, advocate and
promote courses of action that were calculated to increase the number and importance of the town's industries and
its welfare generally, especially its educational and moral conditions. Mr. Wead removed to Boston in 1890, and
engaged there for twenty years in the business of real estate broker and agent. From 1910 until his death he acted
as trustee in the management of various real estate trusts and as an expert on valuations of properties taken by
the city or damaged in the construction of public improvements. His business standing in Boston was high, and his
judgment and advice were widely sought in matters that he had made his specialty, and were greatly respected. Mr.
Wead died in Boston March 16, 1918.
