Birth: Dec. 3, 1897
Winnipeg
Manitoba, Canada
Death: Sep. 1, 1992
Simcoe
Ontario, Canada


Born at Winnipeg on 3 December 1897, son of W. F. Hull and Annie Lovell, he was educated at Kelvin High School. On 6 November 1916, he married Lillian Pachal at Winnipeg. After working in Winnipeg for some years, and being ordained to the ministry, he moved to Jerusalem, Palestine in 1935 having received a "call from God" during a service at Zion Apostolic Church.

Reverend Hull devoted the next 27 years to missionary work in Jerusalem. In 1947, Hull significantly influenced Justice Ivan C. Rand (1884-1969), the Canadian member of the United Nations Special Committee on Palestine, to understand and positively support the Partition Resolution creating the State of Israel. In 1962, Hull was the spiritual counselor for the Nazi war criminal Adolph Eichmann prior to his execution in June 1962. Hull returned to Canada later that year and wrote The Struggle for a Soul (1963, Doubleday) about his experiences with Eichmann.
