Anders Henrik Bull (25 January 1875 – after 1909) was a Norwegian electrical engineer.

He was born in Minneapolis as the son of ophthalmologist Ole Bornemann Bull (1842–1916) and his first wife Marie Cathrine Lund (1843–1884).[1] The family moved to Norway in 1876.[2] He took his engineering education in Kristiania and Hannover.[1]

He returned to Norway from Hannover in 1901, and became noted in the engineering community for his pioneering work on wireless telegraphy. He also worked for Norsk Hydro, as a consultant to Kristian Birkeland, from 1906 to 1909, in that company's formative phase. He married Agnes Emilie Rosenkvist, née Lund, in November 1908. They later remigrated to the United States.[1]

Anders Henrik Bull was the brother of Fredrik Rosing Bull, and a half-brother of Jens Bull and Johan Bull.

He was awarded the Louis E. Levy Medal in 1943.
