Hans Lorns Gloe (1912–1938)

from Australian Forestry

Hans Lorns Gloe was born at Albany on the 27th January, 1912, and died under tragic circumstances on 25th October, 1938. Receiving his secondary school training at Perth Modern School, he matriculated in the faculty of Science and proceeded to the degree of Bachelor of Science at the University of W.A. His Forestry training was acquired at the Australian Forestry School, Canberra, and, upon graduating in 1933 he was appointed to the Western Australian Service. He was engaged for some time on various research projects concerned with stocktaking studies of the Jarrah forest and, in recent summers, his duties were mainly concerned with Fire Weather Investigations and the determination of Fire Hazards.

He met his untimely death while on a honeymoon trip to the Eastern States as a passenger in the ill-fated air-liner Kyeema which crashed at Mount Dandenong, Victoria. It is with great regret that we record the passing of this popular and efficient officer, who was an active and enthusiastic member of the Institute from the date of its inception.
