Henry Boardman Conover was an American soldier and amateur ornithologist. Conover was born in Chicago and studied at the Sheffield Scientific School in Yale. He had an interest in natural history from an early age, and collected bird specimens. In 1920, he traveled to Venezuela with Wilfred Hudson Osgood on a collecting trip for the Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago. They returned to South America in 1922, visiting Chile and Argentina. In 1926, Conover traveled to East Africa. Conover donated his collection of specimens, mostly game birds, to the Field Museum. He made a large number of contributions to Carl Edward Hellmayr's The Catalogue of Birds of the Americas.
