Lynde Bradley

Lynde Bradley (19 August 1878 - 1942), the brother of Harry Lynde Bradley, was the co-founder of the Allen-Bradley Company and the Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation.

Bradley was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and attended Milwaukee public schools.[1]

"In 1901, Lynde was working for Milwaukee Electric when he came up with an idea for improving the controllers that regulate motor speed. He quit his job, secured a $1,000 investment from Dr. Stanton Allen, and founded the Allen-Bradley Company. Harry joined his brother three years later, and together they turned a two-man shop into a major center of industry."[2]

Bradley formed plans to create a foundation shortly before his death, and the Lynde Bradley Foundation was established by his estate soon after his death.[2]
