American socialite, the daughter of Greta Garbo's psychiatrist and the stepdaughter of a Sears Roebuck heiress who was a wealthy painter and photographer.

In 1958 she met Claudette Colbert in Europe. After a second meeting, Colbert asked for her phone number and they became fast friends, inseparable. They painted together, traveled together and even rented twin penthouses back in New York. They had a mutual interest in art and Colbert was lonely, apart from her husband for months at a time and she hated being alone. she loved to flirt with men but enjoyed the companionship of women friends.

In 1960, Colbert bought a house in Barbados and Hull bought a modest house next door.

She died November 13, 2002 in New York, NY.
