A Promising Future of a Writer/Editor, Sculptor, Humanitarian ...

From the John Holly Williams Collection, 1950s, LLF Library
A lifelong resident of Brookhaven, Bruce Brady (pronounced Braddy) was graduated from Lawrenceville Prepartory School in Lawrenceville, NJ, in 1953.  Judging by the shoes and hats on the ladies in the gallery, I suspect this photo is from that very occasion, although I have been wrong before.  Other cap and gown possibilities include ceremonies at Ole Miss; he went on to receive his BA in 1957 and his L.L.B. in 1961.

An avid outdoorsman, the late Bruce Brady spent three decades as a freelance writer, contributing editor, field editor and editor at large at Outdoor Life Magazine.   Google his name and you will find numerous articles by him and about him on the web.  You will find some of his writings on his outdoor adventures, pictures of his bronze sculptures of animals and public figures, and information on his memorial foundation, Catch a Dream.

His sculptures, which can be found in the collections of Ronald Reagan and Robert Dole, are available for sale at numerous galleries in the United States.  To view his bronze work, please click on this link to a local gallery, which includes a more complete biography for those who wish to learn more about this remarkable Brookhavenite.

Also of note is the humanitarian work of the Catch a Dream Foundation, which was launched after his death in February 2000.  Click on the embedded link to learn more about that.
