Bruce Case - Arts & Sciences
Bruce graduated from St. Paul High School in 1952. He attended Louisiana State University and earned his BS in Mechanical Engineering, graduating first in his class of 60 engineers in 1961. Bruce served in the Air Force Security Service in the 50’s.

From 1962 to 1991 Bruce spent his career with DuPont. Bruce was a widely recognized international technical expert on magnetic recording tape and discs. He invented the DuPont Mylar 92DB polyester film for the new 3480 IBM Data Cartridge. Bruce also invented the DuPont Mylar 50KB polyester film for music audio cassettes and worked with major tape producers around the world (Capital Records, RCA, Philips, 3M, Memorex, BASF, Fuji, Sony, Hitachi-Maxell and TDK). Another invention of his was DuPont Mylar 300 PB polyester film for micro floppy discs, working with IBM, Verbatim Fuji, Sony, BASF and others to insure DuPont sole supplier position for early years in the life of the product. He was awarded two patents for process improvements in the manufacturing of polyester film and one patent for improved shotgun shell primer while assigned to Remington Arms, a DuPont subsidiary. As technical advisor to Technicolor Corporation of Hollywood, Bruce solved serious quality problems they were having with their VHS movie tape.

Bruce was awarded the DuPont Marketing Excellence Award in 1987 and the Chuck Yeager Aerospace Education Award for providing plane rides for high school students as part of “Young Eagles” education program.

Bruce retired as a DuPont Fellow, the highest science and engineering level in the company. Less than 0.1% of DuPont scientists and engineers are awarded this high level of accomplishment.

Bruce received his private pilot’s license and has been a Search and Rescue pilot for the Civil Air Patrol.

Just recently Bruce can add “author” to his many achievements, publishing a novel entitled “Ladybug”.
