I was sad to see the passing of Robert Hull in today’s SJ-R. I only took one of his classes while I was a student at Griffin High School, but it was one I never forgot. It was a political science course in the fall of 1976, with a presidential election taking place right in the middle. To this day I can still name several members of Jimmy Carter’s initial cabinet because we had to know them for Mr. Hull’s class. I can’t say he initiated my interest in politics and current affairs, but he sure stoked my desire to always know more. He was so knowledgeable and made sure all his students were a bit more informed when he was through with them. We should all be so lucky to leave such a legacy.
My condolences to his family.
