Уильям Хэнсон Борн (William Hanson Boorne) (1859-1945) - английский фотограф работавший в Канаде.
William Hanson Boorne was trained as a pharmacist and emigrated to Bird's Hill, Manitoba, from Bristol, England, in 1882. He moved to Calgary in 1885 and decided to become a professional photographer. He had been an amateur photographer in England. He appears to have opened a business on his own account in Calgary for a short time.
He returned to England to buy photography equipment and to convince his cousin, Ernest Gundry May, who also had photographic experience, to open a photography studio with him in Calgary. The firm, Boorne and May, opened in 1886 with Boorne as photographer and May as darkroom technician. Their photographs deal mainly with railway construction, the development of towns and cities and mountain scenes.
Boorne married May Woolridge Hichens and they had at least one child, Edgar Percy (1890-?). In 1889 May was appointed Clerk of the Supreme Court and the partnership was dissolved.
During the First World War he served as lieutenant-colonel and district assistant to the adjutant general in Ottawa.
He married Eliza Mary May Paice in 1888 and they had three children, Gerald, Roderick George (1889-?), and Norah (Upper). They lived on a ranch west of Calgary. May died after 1929. Boorne opened a branch studio in Banff in 1889, and one in Edmonton in 1891. The Calgary headquarters was located on 3rd Avenue SW and it was here that stock photographs, souvenir albums and magic lantern slides were produced. The portrait studio on 8th Avenue SW was also the retail outlet for the company's products. The company was incorporated as Boorne and May Co. Ltd. in 1892, but by 1893 it was in financial trouble. Boorne sold the Edmonton studio to C. W. Mathers and the other studios folded. Boorne moved to Vancouver and then back to England to work as a chemical engineer. Boorne died in 1945.
