President John Hull, 1892 - 1893

After working as superintendent of McLean County schools, Hull joined the faculty as head of mathematics in 1874 and rose to become registrar and vice president before being named as Allyn’s successor in 1892.

After Illinois’ political winds shifted, placing John P. Altgeld in the Governor’s Mansion, Hull accepted an offer just a year later to become president of the State Normal School in River Falls, Wis.
