Anna S. Hanhart, statistician and teacher


Anna S. Hanhart, a former statistician and a history buff, died of liver failure March 3 at the Broadmead retirement community in Cockeysville. She was 92.

Anna May Schall was born in Baltimore and raised on East 33rd Street. She was an Eastern High School graduate and earned a degree in economics and statistics in 1938 from Goucher College.

She worked as a statistician for United States Fidelity & Guaranty Co., and during World War II, taught English at the old Greenwood School in Ruxton.

In 1942, she married Ernest H. Hanhart, a mechanical engineer, who established Ernest Hanhart Consulting Engineers in 1945. She worked in the business until her husband retired in 1986.

He died in 1994.

Mrs. Hanhart, who lived in the Woodbrook section of Baltimore County before moving to Broadmead in 1989, was a student of European history, said her daughter, Martha Lynne Hanhart of Basking Ridge, N.J.

She was a founding member of the Women's Auxiliary of the Engineering Society of Baltimore and the Daughters of the American Revolution.

Mrs. Hanhart had been a communicant and Altar Guild member of the Episcopal Church of the Redeemer for more than 50 years.

Plans for a memorial service to be held at Broadmead were incomplete yesterday.

Also surviving is a grandson.
