Leonard Tim Hector (24 November 1942, Antigua – 12 November 2002, Antigua) was a leftist Antiguanmarker political leader and cricket administrator known for his opposition to the rule of the Bird family.

After attending the Antigua Grammar School and teaching there, Hector attended Acadia Universitymarker and McGill Universitymarker. He broke off graduate studies in Philosophy at McGill to return to home, where he felt his contribution was then needed.

Hector was a founder of the Antigua Caribbean Liberation Movement in 1968. The party supported socialism, the Cuban Revolution, and a pan-Caribbean vision.

He published the newspaper The Outlet and the column Fan the Flame.

The writer Jamaica Kincaid, Antigua and Barbuda's best-known expatriate, was a strong supporter of Hector and the ACLM.

He was born Leonard Churchill Hector but his grandfather called him "Tim" as a term of endearment stemming from the Russian General Semyon Timoshenko. (During World War II in the Caribbean, naming children Churchill, Winston, and Roosevelt was common.) In later years he was better known as Tim and more formally known as Leonard Tim Hector.
