Hall chaired reports on a national health scheme for Canada (1964), the Ontario primary- and secondary-school programs (1968), railway arbitration (1973), provincial court structure in Saskatchewan (1974) and grain handling and transportation in western Canada (1977), but is best remembered for the Committee on Aims and Objectives of Education (1968). The subsequent "Hall-Dennis" report focused on the need to accomodate teaching to the stages of child development and on alternative education. He received the only honorary medical degree ever awarded (U of O), and was chancellor of the University of Saskatchewan 1980-86.
