Although born in Chicago, Illinois, on May 1, 1932, Richard Bradford would later spend much of his life among the majestic terrain of the American Southwest. After graduating from college in 1952, the twenty-year-old Bradford spent three years in the U.S. Marines before finally settling in New Mexico. Over the next two decades, he would find work in a myriad of locales in the area, from the tourist bureau in Santa Fe to the Zia Company in the scientific mecca of Los Alamos.
