The results of observations of lunar occultations of Hyades cluster members during the period March 1979 through January 1980 at the Wallace, Agassiz, and Mt. Hopkins Observatories are presented. Timings for 15 events are given. Three known binaries - ADS 3248, phi 342, and theta 1 Tau - are discussed in detail. Strong, but not definitive, evidence that BS 1427 is a heretofore undetected binary is also provided.

Published in Astronomical Journal, vol. 86, Feb. 1981, p. 280-289.
