#### Abstract

Let *X* be a space and let *H(X)* denote its hyperspace (= all nonempty closed subsets of *X* topologized via the Vietoris topology). Then *X* is Boolean (= totally disconnected compact Hausdorff) iff is Boolean; and if *B* denotes the characteristic algebra of clopen sets in *X* then the corresponding algebra for *H(X)* is the free algebra generated by *B* modulo the ideal which "remembers" the upper semilattice structure of* B*.
