Biographical Note

Bruce T. Bullion was born in Tennessee in 1875, and moved to Conway (Faulkner County) at an early age. He served in the Spanish-American War as captain of Company L, 2nd Arkansas Volunteer Infantry. In 1907, Bullion moved to Little Rock as the private secretary to George Donaghey (Governor of Arkansas, 1909-1913). He later served as Secretary of the State Tax Commission and as Deputy Insurance Commissioner under State Auditor Hogan Oliver. Act 190, passed by the Arkansas Legislature in 1917, created the office of State Insurance Commissioner and Fire Marshall, separate from the Auditor's office. Governor Charles H. Brough appointed Bullion to this office, which he held until his resignation in 1925. After resigning from his position as Insurance Commissioner, Bullion was in private practice as a special insurance attorney for a number of years. Bullion was married to the former Jessie Rice. Their son, Bruce T. Bullion Jr. was a prominent Little Rock attorney and chancery judge. Bruce T. Bullion Sr. died in October 1946.
