Transcript Chancellor A. D. Bruce, Lieutenant General, U. S. Army (Ret.), took office as President of the University of Houston on September 1, 1954, and was elevated to the newly- created position of chancellor in December of 1956. General Bruce received a B.S. degree from Texas A&M College in 1916 and an honorary LL.D. in 1946. He entered the regular Army as a Second Lieutenant in June, 1917. Serving in World War I in all ranks to Lieutenant Colonel (temporary), he later attended the Infantry and Field Artillery Schools, the Command and General Staff College, the Army War College and the Naval War College. General Bruce spent three years as an instructor at the Infantry School and for four and one-half years, served as professor of military science and tactics at Allen Academy, Bryan, Texas. While on the War Department General Staff he revised textbooks on doctrine, developed modern instructional aids, revised extension courses and initiated a section on research and development. In 1941, General Bruce conceived organized, built and administered the Tank Destroyer Center at Ft. Hood, Texas. While there he introduced several methods of instruction later adopted by the entire Army. During World War II General Bruce was in command of the 77th Division which participated in bitter fighting in the South Pacific. He served as the first governor of Hokkaido, Japan, while the division occupied that island, and later went to Korea.

In 1947, General Bruce became deputy commander of the Fourth Army at Ft. Sam Houston, Texas. General Bruce came to the University after serving as President (Commandant) of the Armed Forces Staff College. Since his return to his home state, General Bruce has served as a director of many- organizations including the Houston Chamber of Commerce, the Southwest Research Institute, the Scott and White Memorial Hospital, and the Houston Symphony Society. He also holds memberships in many Houston clubs. A. D. BRUCE, Lt. Gen. U.S.A., Ret. 14
