H. E. Hinton

24 August 1912 - 2 August 1977

Professor Howard Everest Hinton was raised in Mexico, where his father managed a silver mine. He received his undergraduate degree from the University of California, Berkeley and his PhD in Entomology from the University of Cambridge. After graduating, he worked at the Natural History Museum in London, where most of his insect collection is currently housed. In 1949, he moved to the University of Bristol, where he spent the rest of his life and where his papers are kept. In 1961 he was elected as a Fellow of the Royal Society.

Hinton founded and edited the Journal of Insect Physiology. Over the course of his career, he published 309 scientific papers, many of which were concerned with insect morphology and taxonomy.
