Tom Hanson
Tom Hanson joined the Radio Observatory volunteers in the early 1990's, when Tom Van HOrne served as volunteer recruiter. He and Tom Hanson shared interests in science fiction, technology, space development and electronic communications. It was a natural transition to add SETI to the shared interests. Tom Hanson led a multiyear effort to collect punched card data on a CDROM. The project was supported by every member of the volunteers, as well as numerous others. After retiring from National City Bank in 1998, Tom has pursued computer consulting as a new career direction.
