Norman MacLeod (1812 – 1872), Scottish divine and miscellaneous writer, son of the Rev. Norman Macleod, D.D., a distinguished minister of the Scottish Church, studied at Edinburgh, and was ordained in 1838. He became one of the most distinguished ministers, and most popular preachers of his Church, was made one of the Royal Chaplains in Scotland in 1857, and became a trusted friend of Queen Victoria. He was the first editor of Good Words, to which he contributed many articles and stories, including Wee Davie, The Starling, and The Old Lieutenant and his Son.

A statue was erected to him in Cathedral Square showing him in the court dress of Moderator of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland , over which he wears the Geneva gown of a Minister of that Church, with the hood of a Doctor of Divinity. He sports the badge of Dean of the Order of the Thistle. He is brandishing a Bible and raising his hand in preaching. He can also be seen, this time greeting Queen Victoria ,in a relief on her statue in George Square on the occasion of her visit to the Cathedral.
