OUTLINE OF THE CAREER OF HOWARD EVEREST HINTON Howard Everest Hinton was born on 24 August 1912 in Matehuala, Mexico. His parents had moved to Mexico in connection with his father's work as metallurgist and mining engineer. From the age of 15 Hinton was educated at schools in California before going on to the University of California at Berkeley where he was awarded his B.Sc. in 1934. He did postgraduate research at King's College Cambridge and was awarded his Ph.D. in 1939 (Sc.D. 1957). Hinton was appointed Junior Curator at the University Museum of Zoology in Cambridge in 1937. In 1939 he was made Assistant Keeper at the British Museum (Natural History), a post he held until 1949 when he was appointed Lecturer in Zoology at the University of Bristol. He remained at the University of Bristol for the remainder of his career, being made Reader in Entomology in 1951, Professor of Entomology in 1964 and Professor of Zoology and Head of Department personal Chair. He died on 2 August 1977. teach a wide range of entomological subjects new to him. Hinton developed his research interests to Hinton began collecting insects from the age of nine, his interest in natural history acquired from his father, an amateur naturalist of some note. By the time he received his B.Sc. he had already seventeen in 1970. He resigned as Head of Department in July 1977 for reasons of ill-health and resumed his published papers. His pre-war research was concentrated on the classification of beetles but Hinton's entomological interests were subsequently broadened, initially by his wartime work on insect pests of stored products, and then by his appointment as Lecturer at Bristol University, for which he was required to cover many fields such as insect metamorphosis, insect pupae, respiratory adaptations, cryptobiosis in Society of London 1969-1970. He was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1961. Hinton served as President of the Society for British Entomology 1954-1955 and the Royal Entomological insects (in which connection he posited a new theory of the origin of life on Earth) and insect coloration. He authored over 300 publications, his work culminating in the three volume Biology of Insect Eggs which he completed just before his death. Hinton also founded and edited the Journal of Insect Physiology and the journal Insect Biochemistry. H. E. Hinton NCUACS 59/2/96 Hinton was very conscious of his distinguished family background. His paternal great-great grandfather was John Howard Hinton, author of Elements of natural history and an introduction to systematic zoology, and his paternal great grandfathers were the mathematican George Boole FRS and James Hinton, an aural surgeon. His grandfather Charles Howard Hinton was Professor of Mathematics at Princeton University. Great-great uncles included Sir George Everest FRS, the Surveyor General of India, and A.C. Haddon FRS. Hinton's first cousin once removed was Sir Geoffrey Ingram Taylor FRS. For a fuller account of Hinton's life and work see the biographical memoir by G. Salt (Biographical Memoirs of Fellows of the Royal Society 24 (1978), 151-182, a copy of which may be found at A.3.
