Memorable Manitobans: John T. Hull (c1875-1952)


Born at Newcastle-on-Tyne, England around 1875, he was Editor of the Saskatoon Phoenix prior to becoming Assistant Editor for the Grain Growers Guide (1920-1925). In September 1925, he was put in charge of publicity for the newly-formed Manitoba Wheat Pool and was Editor of its official organ, The Scoop Shovel (predecessor of Manitoba Co-operator). He also served as secretary of the Manitoba Co-operative conference. He died at his Winnipeg home, 477 Dominion Street, on 19 October 1952.
