Bradley spent a year investigating the health of rural North Carolinians in the coastal plain and mountains. Disparity between the care available to whites and blacks challenged Bradley’s racial attitudes, especially vis-à-vis midwives and maternal mortality. The bureau published a book-length account of her North Carolina findings that inspired other states to request rural field studies by Bradley.
