Transcript Although a soldier for many years, General A. D. Bruce emphasized that he was not bringing the drill field to the University of Houston. "I've dealt a great deal with young people and want to continue to help them," stated the General when asked why he came to the University, and then emphatically continued with, "I also think the University of Houston is unique in its field—progressive and challenging." This modern-minded educator relies on the great proverb, "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you," for he believes it to be as fitting in today's streamlined world of efficiency as it was long ago when Christ gave it to His disciples. Foremost in his thoughts today, the General says, is the care of the student. This means good times, good food, and good living just as much as good curriculum, for he wants his students to be well-rounded individuals—not bookworms or party kids—but enough of both. After graduating from Texas A&M in 1916, General Bruce began his great military career. He soon became known as one who was always up to date. He liked modern ideas and methods and helped put into operation in the service such improvements as movies and other efficient instructional aids. Never one to stand still, General Bruce was in on many of the bloody battles of World War I, he commanded the 77th Infantry Division in World War II and served as the first Governor of occupied Hokkaido, Japan, which sums up only a few of his outstanding services. On July 31, 1954, General Bruce, the soldier and fighter, became General Bruce, the civilian and educator. Now President of the University of Houston, he is directing, educating, and doing his best to mold the lives of his students into lives of well-rounded, well-educated people. 18
