Although she boasted a 50-year career, Hull is best known for her later roles as plump, scatterbrained matrons. Born Josephine Sherwood to a well-to-do New England family, the hopeful actress attended Radcliffe and The New England Conservatory of Music before making her stage debut in stock in 1905. After some years as a chorus girl and touring stock player, she married actor Shelley Hull (younger brother of the more well-known actor Warren Hull) in 1910. When her husband died in 1919, the actress retired until 1923, when she returned under the name Josephine Hull.
