I Mr Hann is a Durham man, and was born in 1850. He entered the mining profession at the Hetton Collieries, and soon after completing his articles obtained a manager's position in the Cleveland Ironstone, under a firm which had some interests and connections in South Wales, through which Mr Hann first visited South Wales in 1872. In 1879 he joined the staff of the Powell Duffryn Company, being appointed manager of the New Tredegar and White Rose Collieries in the Rhymney Valley. SIDCtl 1885 he has had the entire control of the company's operations in the Rhymney and Aberdare Valleys. The output of the various collieries now approaches 2,000,000 tons annually-double what it was when Mr Hann became the com- pany's general manager. He has also had the charge of the Penrhiwceibyr Colliery, owned by the Penrhikyber Ooal Company, since the middle of 1893. He is a member of the Institute of Civil Engineers and a member of the Council of the South Walf Institute, Soon after his removal from the Rhymney Valley to the Aberdare Valley he took an active interest in the local government of the pariah, and was elected, November 18th, 1880. a member of the Aberdare Local Board of Health, a position which he held practically without opposition until the board was dissolved by the establishment of the Urban District Council in December, 1894-Mr Hann heading the poll for the Aberaman Ward at the first election of members for that body. In March, 1881. he was elected a member of the Merthyr Board of Guardians, a position which he baa held ever since. In private as well aa in public life Mr Hann is greatly respected. He was one of the earliest supporters of the Aberdare Naturalists' Society, of which he was the president in 1891, and did much to seoure for the town the excellent series of Gilchrist lectures which were delivered under the auspices of that trust.
