He was born in Fitchburg on January 27, 1935 the son of the late Edward Hitchcock Hall Sr and Virginia (Carson) Hall. He was known to family and friends as Ted.
Ted attended Fitchburg grade schools and graduated from Phillips Exeter Academy in 1953. He then graduated from Harvard College in 1957. Soon after joined his father’s business and eventually assumed ownership and became CEO of Fitchburg Screen Plate CO, Morey Paper Mill Supply Co and adding National Perforating Corp of Clinton, Steel-Fab in Fitchburg and Monadnock Screen Plate Co. of Jaffrey, NH. He closed the family business in 2004 and retired to his home in Lunenburg.

As a lifelong member of Christ Church in Fitchburg, he sang in the boys’ choir as his father Ed did before him and his son Jonathan did after him. He also served as Vestryman as an adult. He was a Director of the former Safety Fund Bank in Fitchburg, the Republican State Committee and a member and past President of the Fay Club.
Ted was a skier in his youth, he enjoyed tennis and sailing, most especially in the Caribbean. In his retirement traveling beckoned, as business travel was replaced by exotic locales with his wife Ann to China, Russia, Turkey, the Greek Islands and Egypt.
