J. H. BRADLEY.
The young man who reads this brief review of the career of J. H. Bradley, superintendent of the public schools
of Lindsay, California, will find an illustration of what can be accomplished by energy and determination. He was
born April 5, 1886, in Fillmore county, Minnesota. His parents, William and Mary (Haggerty) Bradley, belonged to
that great class of moderately well to do people, but the educational facilities then lacked many of the advantages
presented by the schools of the present day. As a boy he attended the local public schools and later the high school.
A better education was the goal of young Bradley's ambition. He therefore enrolled as a student in Fremont College,
Fremont, Nebraska, from which institution he received the degree of Bachelor of Arts. He then studied for a time
in the University of Southern Minnesota, at Austin, after which he entered the University of North Dakota, from
which he was graduated with the class of 1918, as a Master of Arts. During the next four years he was superintendent
of the public schools at Velva, North Dakota.
In the summer of 1922 Mr. Bradley came to California to attend the summer school of the University of California
at Berkeley. That autumn he came to Lindsay as vice principal of the high school. At the close of the school term
in 1923 he was elected to his present position of superintendent. He is a member of the California Teachers Association
and in 1924 was chairman of the nominating committee for Tulare county; also vice chairman of Tulare County Institute.
In 1913 Mr. Bradley was united in marriage with Miss Hulda Ronning of Columbus, North Dakota. To this union have
been born three daughters: Ina, Jean and Vivian. Mr. Bradley is a Scottish Rite Mason and stands high in that order.
