Hull, an evolutionary theorist, taught at Northwestern from to He is widely regarded as making known the field of research that became the philosophy of biology, and his career was devoted to understanding how science, and biology in particular, works.

Eventually he knew the fields he covered so well that the professional societies he was investigating made him a member and asked him to present papers on substantive issues in science.

In time, his colleagues -- myself included -- began to think of him more as an angel than a human being. Scientific change occurs, according to Mr. Hull, in much the same way that evolutionary change occurs in the natural world -- via repeated cycles of variation, replication and environmental interaction.

One of his earliest ideas that has stood the test of time is the notion that species are individuals rather than classes of things with essential features. Hull donated books and reprints from his personal library to the Arizona State University Center for Biology and Society. Hull Collection includes a number of out-of-print books as well as published works on evolutionary biology, systematics and taxonomy, psychology, Darwin and the philosophy of science.

Hull was an advocate for gay and lesbian rights and worked with disadvantaged youth. He also was an avid artist and painter.

After serving in the Army, Mr. Hull got his undergraduate degree at Illinois Wesleyan University in and his Ph. He taught biology and philosophy at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee from to Hull joined the Northwestern faculty in and was named the Dressler Professor in the Humanities in He retired from the University in Hull held positions in scientific societies, including as president of the Philosophy of Science Association and the Society for Systematic Zoology.

Hull is survived by his brother, Richard Hull of North Carolina, one niece and two nephews. A memorial service is being planned for October. Library Maps Parking Shuttles Bookstore.
