Leopold Hammel (August 24, 1858 – February 26, 1929) was an American lawyer and politician.

Born in Rochester, New York,[Note 1] Hammel moved to Appleton, Wisconsin in 1866. In 1877, Hammel graduated from Lawrence University and went to the Columbia Law School. Hammel was admitted to the Wisconsin bar and practiced law in Appleton, Wisconsin. In 1885 and 1887, Hammel served in the Wisconsin State Assembly and was a Republican.[3] Later, Hammel moved to Milwaukee, Wisconsin and continued to practice law. Hammel served as district attorney for Milwaukee County, Wisconsin.[1] Hammel died of a heart attack in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.[1][2][4]

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ Hammel's newspaper obituaries incorrectly state that he was born in Appleton.[1][2] However, various vital records (census, marriage) agree with other biographies that he was born in Rochester.
