This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following, submitted December 2004 by James Breen, Researcher, is from John Batrauch who received the data from the Cayuga Museum in Auburn, New York.

William Bruce was born in Auburn, New York and lived there all of his life with the exception of periods spent studying art in New York City and Europe. His early career is marked by exceptional portraits but in later years, he devoted a great deal of time to painting animals. He did especially fine work in his paintings of dogs. Other works were known to be used by calendar firms that distributed all over the world.

Bruce was known as a genial person and as a conversationalist. He was thoroughly liked and respected by a large circle of friends.

He died at 50 years of age after a brief illness from Bright's disease and heart failure. Interment was made in Fort Hill Cemetery in Auburn, NY.
The following, submitted May 2005 by James Breen, Researcher, is from the "Brooklyn Eagle" (newspaper), March 15, 1883.

"William Bruce, a pupil of George L. Clough, and working in that artist's studio, in the Institute Building, is doing some very promising work. He is a constant worker, and appears to be thoroughly in earnest in the profession which he has adopted. It will be suprising if he does not give an excellent report of himself through the exhibitions before long".
