HANNA, Wilson Creal (1883-1982)[SS#561-05-9668], oologist born in Leadville, Colorado. His family moved to Banning, California when he was one year old, and in 1889 when he was five, the family moved to Colton, California where he remained for his lifetime. Hanna developed an early interest in oology and collected his first set of eggs when he was four years old. He was one of the three graduates of Colton High School in 1902. After college Hanna was employed as a chemist by the California Portland Cement Company. At the time of his retirement he was vice-president in charge of technical development of the company.

Hanna was a charter member of the Cooper Ornithological Society and authored 58 articles between 1902 and 1961, many of which detail birds in the San Gabriel and San Bernardino mountains. During his lifetime Hanna amassed a collection of over 30,000 sets of egg representing most of the bird families from all parts of the world. Most of these were collected between 1910 and 1940. Hanna’s egg collection was donated to the San Bernardino County Museum which now holds the fifth largest collection of egg sets in the world.
