The CRITERIO vo1..vu1. NO.'3. Anmvions, OKLA., MAY, 1912 Price zsc George Henry Bruce Mr. G. H. Bruce, to whom this volume is dedicated, was born in Orange County, Vt., April 23, 1841. When he was 18 years of age he and his brother, R. Bruce, came south and settled in Gonzales County, Texas, where they lived until the opening of tl1e Civil War. True to their adopted home, he and his brother espoused the cause of the Confederacy, and joined Terry's Texas Rangers, Company E. With this company he saw active service throughout the entire war, and fought with three of the greatest cavalry leaders this country has ever seen: John H. Morgan, Nathan Bedford Forrest and Joe lllheeler. Following such leade1's as these necessarily took him into 1nany of the fiercest battles of this terrible war. He was wounded twice-once in tl1e left arm, and once in the left leg. Tl1rougl1out the entire struggle he was brave and loyal, as is evidenced by the fact that on one occasion, when he had carried l1is brother off tl1e field, who had been wounded by a grape shot, they fell into the hands of the enemy, who offered to pay their transportation back to any point in the north, but he sternly refused to accept anything at their hands. lt is quite a coincidence that he and his brother, S. R. Bruce, we1'e combatants throughout tl1e entire war on the Confederate side, and had two other brothers who went all the way through the war in the federal army. - Just as the war was closing, this brave young Confederate cavalryman met, wooed and won Miss Mattie Reeves of Oglethorpe, Ga., whom he married on April 14, 1865. Possibly tl1e1'e has never been a happier union than this one. They have four children today, two sons and two daughters: C. P. Bruce and Stanley R. Bruce of Oklahoma City, Mrs. S. M. Tor- bett of Ada, and Mrs. H. E. Foster of this city. After the close of the war Mr. Bruce came to Hunt County, Texas, where he lived until Feb. 1-L,1890, when he moved to this city. For a number of years he engaged in the saddle and harness business. About ten yea1's ago he accepted the city clerkship of this city, at the earnest solicitation of 111any of the principal city otlicials, and has held the office continuously from that time to this. He was a member of the Iirst board of education ever organized i11 this city, and has been a member continuously from that time to this. He has assisted in building up from a mere beginning one of tl1e ,greatest systems of schools in the southwest, and has contributed largely toward its rapid and successful development. Possibly there is no other person in the entire city who knows all the details in connection with tl1e schools as well as he. Possibly there is no one in this city who is so gentle, uniformly courteous and kind and sympathetic with every one as he. In fact, these qualities have won for him the love of the entire city, and every one feels so kindly toward him that he is affectionately known as "Uncle George Henry." Besides his work for the city and the schools, he is secretary of nearly all the lodges and every other organization with which he is connected, and no man is more careful about the details of his work than is "Uncle George." The faculty and student body, with one accord, wish for him many more happy years filled with pleasure and kindly rninistration.
