He was graduated at Toronto University in 1867, and at Knox College (Presbyterian)in 1871, having taken five out of the six scholarships open for competition. In 1871 he was selected as assistant and successor in Chalmer's church, Quebec, and in August of the same year was authorized by the home mission committee of the Presbyterian general assembly to found a College among the Selkirk settlers on Red river, and also to organize a Presbyterian church in Winnipeg, Manitoba. The projected College was successfully organized by him and established at Kildonan, four miles from Winnipeg. In 1883 it was incorporated, and in 1884 removed to Winnipeg. Mr. Bryce, in 1877, was one of the principal founders of Manitoba University, which includes St. Boniface (Roman Catholic), St. John's (Episcopal), and Manitoba (Presbyterian) Colleges. He was appointed first inspector of Winnipeg public schools in 1877, and has been an examiner in natural science in Manitoba University since 1878. He is trustee of all the Presbyterian Indian mission property in the northwest, and in 1884 was appointed moderator of the first Presbyterian synod of Manitoba and the northwest territories. He is the author of "Manitoba : its Infancy, Growth, and Present Condition" (London, 1882), and of "Manitoba" in the "Encyclopaedia Britannica," and is now (1886) writing a history of Canada and the northwest.
