ABSTRACT
MacLeod, Sir George (məkloud′), 1895–1991, Scottish clergyman. He was educated at Oxford and, after serving in World War I, was ordained a Church of Scotland minister in 1924. Disaffected with his church's tenuous relations with its parishoners, MacLeod left his ministry in a Glasgow slum and in 1938 organized a multidenominational religious community with unemployed workers and fellow clerics on the Scottish island of Iona. A pacifist dedicated to political and social involvement, MacLeod served as moderator of the Church of Scotland in 1957–58. In 1967 he was created a life peer as Baron MacLeod of Fuinary.
