Transcript Chancellor CHANCELLOR'S DREAM SPACIOUS YARDS surrounding the chancellor's home provide an excellent place for outdoor relaxation away from the campus. GENERAL A. D. BRUCE BUILT GOODWILL FOR UNIVERSITY Another victory may be credited to an eminent tactician . . . the victory of gaining a place in the Texas System of Higher Education for the University of Houston. A. D. Bruce, Lt. General, USA Retired, came to the University of Houston on September 1, 1954, to assume the office of president. In December of 1956, he was elevated to the newly-created chancellor position. Previous to his arrival in Houston he served as the commandant (president) of the Armed Forces Staff College. General Bruce received a B.S. degree from Texas A&M College in 1916 and an honorary LL.D. in 1946. Entering the regular Army as a second lieutenant in June, 1917, he retired after 37 years of active service. His record in World Wars I and II is indicated by this nation's Distinguished Service Cross and decorations from the Army, Navy, Air Force and foreign governments. During World War II, he activated the Tank Destroyer Center at Fort Hood, Texas, and later commanded the 77th Infantry Division during some of the most crucial fighting in the South Pacific. His postwar duties included those of the first governor of Hokkaido, Japan, while his division occupied that island, and later in service in Korea. Since his return to his home state, Chancellor Bruce has served as a board director of the Southwest Research Institute, trustee of Scott and White Memorial Hospital and held numerous memberships in Houston clubs. Much of the wider academic and over-all acceptance experienced by the University has been made possible through the chancellor's outstanding service and steadfast devotion. Truly a great leader . . . General A. D. Bruce. MUSIC SERVES as a pastime for General and Mrs. Bruce who often spend leisure time at the piano recalling some of their favorite melodies. AN AMUSING STORY brings a laugh to General Bruce as he and his wife sit in the living room of the chancellor's home at 3612 Parkwood. 14
