Mr. (Bill) Hutchinson

Character Analysis

Bill Hutchinson is the husband of Tess Hutchinson. When she protests his selection in the lottery, he tells her to shut up. It is unclear why he does so – perhaps he believes in the lottery, or perhaps he doesn't want the family to be shamed in front of the entire village.
