HOAR, Leonard, educator, born about 1629; died in Braintree, Massachusetts, 28 November, 1675. He was graduated at Harvard in 1650, married a daughter of John Lisle, the regicide, was a minister of Wanstead, Essex, until he was ejected for non-conformity in 1662. On returning to Massachusetts in 1672, he was for some time assistant to Thomas Thatcher at the South church, Boston. He was president of Harvard college from 10 September, 1672, till 15 March, 1675, and was the first person to propose the modern system of technical education, by the addition of a garden and orchard, a workshop, and a chemical laboratory to Harvard. Mr. Hoar was regarded as being deficient in governing power, and the college students rendered his situation so uncomfortable that he resigned.
