Debsconeag Lake

This page is more for family and personal information. See also my professional bio.


My full name is Bertram Camp Bruce, Jr. My father was Bertram Camp Bruce and his father was Bertram Carr Bruce. My father started calling himself Bert Bruce, Jr. to distinguish himself from his father. So, there I was, a real junior, who’s own father called himself junior. All of this was before I was aware of much at all. To avoid confusion, my parents chose a nickname. First, it was Chipper, which many old friends still use. Then later, it became Chip.

Here’s a personal and family history.

  1. Hello, I am completing my Masters of Education at a university in Canada, and have cited one of your articles in my final paper. I was wondering if I could get in touch with you regarding permission to use a figure that you and Bishop developed (Cycle of Inquiry). If you are able to contact me by email I would greatly appreciate it.
    Thank you very much for your time.

  2. Hey Chip,

    Great blog. I love to read about your, and your family’s, adventure. When I was in CA I would show the kids’ blogs to friends but had not seen yours. When you are in town next please help me with my site. I want to replace the animals at the top of the page with photos of my ppets. I hope you will be able to help me. I cannot make the pics small enough. I hope we see y’all soon.
