E. Tremain Bradley ’31

Published in Oct. 9, 1996, issue

Trump Bradley died Aug. 18, 1996, in Norfolk, Conn. He had been chopping wood and suffered a fatal heart attack.

Trump grew up in Nyack, N.Y., and was a graduate of Exeter Academy. He won a letter as a hurdler at Princeton, and was our first class president on graduation. He was a member of Cap and Gown Club.

Trump earned his MD at Cornell medical school in 1936, and in 1941, after working in various hospitals, he established his practice in general surgery and obstetrics in New Canaan, Conn.

During the war, Trump served in the European theater attached to the First Army Medical Corps. He was discharged in 1946 with the rank of captain. On his return to New Canaan, he was active in the Red Cross, in hospital and church advisory, and in fund-raising.

Trump served on the class executive committee and was most recently the class's memorialist. Throughout his life, his smile of sincere greeting, his wide circular handshake as he grasped your shoulder, and his very personality beamed love and a sincere interest in all.

Pen Reed and Dave Watt represented the class at Trump's memorial service, which included the playing of "Old Nassau." He is survived by his wife of 27 years, Marilyn, eight children, and 17 grandchildren. The class extends sincere sympathy to all of them. We have all lost someone whom we will not forget.
