BruceDavidColonelHe was born at Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, May 29, 1855. Colonel Bruce was educated at the High School, Stirling, NB, and Edin University, where he took his MB CM, in 1881. He entered the RAMC in Aug, 1883; served in Malta from 1884-9, and while there worked at Malta fever, discovering its cause in the Micrococcus melitensis. He taught pathology and bacteriology in the Army Medical School, Netley, from 1889-94; served in South Africa from 189+1901, two years of which (1895-6) he spent in Zululand investigating the Nagano or tsetse fly disease. He discovered the cause of this disease to be a protozoon since named Trypanosoma Brucei, and showed that this parasite lived normally in the blood of the wild animals, whence the tsetse fly conveyed it to the domestic animals. For this addition to natural knowledge he was made FRS, and awarded the Cameron Prize of the Edinburgh University. In the Boer War he was at the siege of Ladysmith, and with General Buller in his march to Belfast. He was member of the Commission to investigate the cause of dysentery and enteric fever in the Army. He received special promotion (medal, 7 clasps); was appointed member of the Advisory Board, War Office, 1901, and Director of the Sleeping Sickness Comm., Royal Society, Uganda, 1903. He proceeded to Uganda and showed that sleeping sickness is a human tsetse fly disease, caused by Trypanosoma gambiense and carried by Glossina palpatis. For this he was awarded a Royal Medal by the Royal Society and made Brevet Colonel, Dec 10, 1903. In 1904 he was appointed Chairman of the Mediterranean Fever Commission of the Royal Society to direct investigation of Mediterranean fever. Colonel Bruce was married in 1883 to Miss Mary Elizabeth Steele, of Reigate, Surrey.Royal Army Medical Corps
