"Jelly" Bryce, colorful Federal Bureau of Investigation agent and once a candidate for governor of Oklahoma. He died in his sleep Sunday at a lodge near Grand Lake, where he was attending a gathering of retired FBI agents. He was 67. Bryce served 23 years with the FBI and was recognized as one of the most colorful law enforcement officers in the Southwest. A reticent man, he would not freely talk about the variety of cases he was assigned over the years, bul colleagues said he was in the thick of the bureau's .gangbL ! 1930s. He retired in 1958 as agent in charge of the Oklahoma City office and unsuccessfully challenged the late J. Howard Kdmondspn in the gubernatorial election lhat year. When Bryce came lo the FBI in 1934 from lhe Oklahoma City rolice department, he had already established a reputation as a crack marksman and one of the fastest draws in the nation. His unusual nickname was also firmly in place. Oldtimers said he got it when a tipsy patron of the city jail referred lo the dapper Bryco as a "jellybean," a slang term applied to slick dressers- He later had it legally inserted as part of his full name. Brycc served as a special agent in bureaus across the nation before returning to his native stale. He shifted to the Albuquerque. N.M.. bureau in 1953 liu! moved back lo Oklahoma City Ihree years laler. He ran as nn independent against Democrat Edmondson, the eventual winner, and Republican Phil Ferguson. P o I i t i c EI I observers say Brycc's bid was an unusua'l campaign in that he still held vith the FBI's secrecy policy and sometimes declined lo discuss points of his platform. He ran on a program calling or the overhaul of state law inforcement and also boasted hat he knew the names and addresses of every Communist n the stale and could promise lone would serve in positions of trust u n d e r him as governor.
