One of Missouri's most illustrious native son's, Bradley was born in 1893 near Clark, Missouri, south of Moberly in rural Randolph County. He graduated from Moberly High School and lived there until he was accepted into West Point, where he was a star athlete. Moberly calls Bradley its favorite son and, throughout his life, Bradley called Moberly his hometown and his "favorite city in the world." He was a honorary member of the Rotary Club, played near-handicap golf regularly at the local course, and had a "Bradley pew" at Central Christian Church.
