Following wartime service in the U.S. Naval Reserve, he completed a Ph.D. in Physics at the University of California, Berkeley, in 1953. From 1953-1961 he was a researcher and faculty member at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York. In 1961, he came to Colorado College as Associate Professor of Physics, and was promoted to Full Professor in 1966. He retired from a long and distinguished career at Colorado College in 1987, including six years as Dean of the Faculty and Dean of the College from 1973 to 1979. Active in environmental politics both at the local and national level, Bradley served as president of the Springs Area Beautiful Association from 1971 to 1973, and as a trustee of the National Parks Association from 1966 to 1976. An avid cross-country skier, he is also noted for his interest in music as a long-time member of the Colorado Springs Chorale, the Colorado Opera Festival Board, and as a composer of some note.
