An abandoned Single Room Hotel (Hugo Hotel) at 6th and Howard in San Francisco, California

Single room occupancy (more commonly SRO, sometimes called a single resident occupancy) is a form of housing in which one or two people are housed in individual rooms (sometimes two rooms, or two rooms with a bathroom or half bathroom) within a multiple-tenant building. The term is primarily used in Canadian and American cities. SRO tenants typically share bathrooms and/or kitchens, while some SRO rooms may include kitchenettes, bathrooms, or half-baths. Although many are former hotels, SROs are primarily rented as permanent residences.
Single room occupancies are often a form of affordable housing for low-income and formerly homeless individuals.[1]

The refurbished single room Ambassador Hotel at 55 Mason Street in San Francisco.

The term originated in New York City, probably in the 1930s (the Oxford English Dictionary provides an earliest citation of 1941), but the institutions date back at least fifty years before the nickname was applied to them. SROs exist in many American cities, and are most common in larger cities. In many cases, the buildings themselves were formerly hotels in or near a city’s central business district. Many of these buildings were built in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
The United States saw a decrease in single room occupancy housing during the period of 1960s and 1970s urban decay. For example, in Chicago 81% of the SRO housing stock disappeared between 1960 and 1980.[2]
Many SRO buildings face strong development pressure for conversion to more profitable uses. Some cities have regulated the conversion of SROs to other uses in order to prevent landlords from forcibly evicting SRO tenants. San Francisco passed an SRO Hotel Conversion Ordinance in 1980, which restricts the conversion of SRO hotels to tourist use. SROs are prominent in the Tenderloin, Mission District and Chinatown communities.
In San Francisco, the city may take over particularly squalid SROs, and renovate them for the disadvantaged. Landlords w

Glyn Harman

Glyn Harman (born 2 November 1956) is a British mathematician working in analytic number theory.[1] One of his major interests is prime number theory. He is best known for results on gaps between primes and the greatest prime factor of p + a, as well as his lower bound for the number of Carmichael numbers up to X. His monograph entitled Prime-detecting Sieves was published by Princeton University Press. He has also written a book entitled Metric Number Theory, and he has in addition contributed to the field of Diophantine approximation.[2]
Harman retired at the end of 2013 from being a professor at Royal Holloway, University of London.[1] Previously he was a professor at Cardiff University.
Harman is married, and has three sons,[1] and used to live in Wokingham, Berkshire before moving to Harrow, Middlesex/Greater London.

David Reesor (January 18, 1823 – April 28, 1902) was an Ontario businessman and political figure. He was a Liberal member of the Senate of Canada for King’s division from 1867 to 1901.
He was born in Reesorville (later the Village of Markham), Upper Canada in 1823 to parents Abraham Reesor (1755–1823) and Anna Dettwiler (d. 1857), descended from Pennsylvania Dutch Mennonite immigrants who first settled in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. David was the nephew of Abraham Stouffer, founder of Stouffville, and of Peter Reesor, co-founder of Reesorville (later Markham) and Cedar Valley. In 1848, he married Emily McDougall, who was the sister of politician William McDougall. Reesor was editor of the Markham Economist. He was also a magistrate and notary public, reeve of Markham, Ontario (1851, 1856–57 and 1859–1860) and served as warden for York and Peel counties. Though Reesor came from a pacifist Mennonite background, he became a lieutenant-colonel in the local militia. He was elected to the Legislative Council of the Province of Canada for King’s division in 1860 and served until Confederation, when he was named to the Senate. During the debates preceding Confederation, Reesor supported an elected Senate. He resigned in 1901.
He died at Rosedale in north Toronto in 1902 and buried with wife at Mount Pleasant Cemetery, Toronto. His home at 166 Main Street North in Markham (built 1876) still stands. Senator Reesor Drive in Markham is named in his honour.[1]
Reesor married Emily McDougall in 1847, who was sister to Father of Conferation William McDougall.
