Charles H. Bull, M. D.

Page 478 - Charles H. Bull, M. D., is one of the pioneers and practically the oldest of the present practitioners in the medical profession in Grand Rapids in length of continuous service in this community. Dr. Bull was born in Downsview, Ontario, Canada, September 28, 1866, and received his education in Weston, Ontario, high school and the medical department of the University of Toronto, Canada, from which institution he graduated in 1892. In the fall of the same year he came to Grand Rapids, where he has continuously been engaged in active practice. Dr. Bull is a member of all branches of the Masonic order and Shrine, Knights of Pythias, and affiliated with the Methodist Episcopal church. He was married July 30, 1922, to Miss Ruth McAlavy, of Grand Rapids. To a very ardent and close application to his professional duties and service to patients Dr. Bull owes a splendid success, both materially and professionally. The Doctor has so closely confined himself to professional services that he has not as voluminous a roster of participation in other activities as some of his brethren who relieve the strenuous tension of their work with these other services. But due to the fact that Dr. Bull could hold up under the strain without "a change of activity," thousands of people thankfully look back upon the extra time he thereby gave to his profession without breaking under the overtime strain.
