A Doctor for Rural America

Barbara Barksdale Clowse

University Press of Kentucky

Having New England roots but growing up in Atlanta gave Bradley a dual Yankee-Southern identity. Her father’s sudden death when she was twelve plus her nursing her mother and siblings through serious illnesses brought an early but shadowed maturity. Marriage to Horace Bradley in 1885 took her to New York City. After his early death from tuberculosis in 1896, she faced poverty and raising four children alone.
