Biographical history

Harold Bull was a student at Victoria University (Class of 1919) who served overseas in World War I in the First Canadian Tank Battalion. He was born in Yorkton, Saskatchewan in 1895, and attended high school in Brampton. After graduating from Victoria he moved back to Yorkton, then was resident in a number of places before settling in Muncie, Indiana, in 1938 and working in management at a newspaper publisher. In 1941 he married Anna Marie Yates, and they had two children. Harold went on to a career in insurance, not retiring until his mid-eighties. He died in 1992.
