No information has been found on the parentage and early education of John Tull, who graduated at McGill University and joined the Government Service as pathologist to the Rangoon General Hospital, Burma. He was Government pathologist in Singapore and lecturer on pathology and medical jurisprudence to its King Edward VII Medical College when he was elected to the Fellowship. At the time of his sudden death in 1943 he was serving in the rank of captain as pathologist to the Springfield Military Hospital in Nicosia. He was survived by his widow.
