Biography from "A Standard History of Kansas and Kansans", by William E. Connelley, 1919.
"Bruce W. St. John was educated in the rural schools of Graham County and had a good deal of training in the work of the farm and ranch. At the age of twenty-five he entered the lumber business at Morland, and his yard and offices are along side the Union Pacific tracks. It is the only lumber yard in town, and he has made the business a source of reliable service to a large community. In 1911 he became president of the Morland State Bank, and his other evidences of business success found in his farm of 800 acres adjoining the townsite on the southwest and where his blooded livestock is kept.
Mr. St. John has served as treasurer of Solomon Township, and is a member of the school board at Morland. He is an independent democrat and a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church. His only fraternity is Morland Lodge of the Ancient Order of United Workmen."
