Enderton also contributed to recursion theory, the theory of definability, models of analysis, computational complexity, and the history of logic.^{[2]}

He earned his Ph.D. at Harvard in 1962.^{[3]} He was a member of the American Mathematical Society from 1961 until his death.^{[1]}

He lived in Santa Monica. He married his wife, Cathy, in 1961 and they had two sons; Eric and Bert.^{[4]}

From 1980 to 2002 he was coordinating editor of the reviews section of the Association for Symbolic Logic's Journal of Symbolic Logic.^{[5]}

He died from leukemia in 2010.^{[4]}
