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.
