This chapter discusses the leadership of Leon M. Lederman as director of the Fermilab. It provides a biographical background of Lederman and describes his leadership style. Like Robert R. Wilson, Lederman structured his vision for Fermilab on his self-image with a personae based on his all-embracing passion for physics. This chapter discusses how Lederman stabilized the laboratory, improved its funding environment and nurtured a vigorous megascience in a truly national laboratory whose frontier science was integrated within the cultural matrix of the American Midwest.
