(Dr.) Bradley and King Mongkut
Born in Marcellus, NY in a Christian home. His father was a pastor. Graduated from N.Y. Medical college and married Emelie Royce after a brief mail courtship, on the way to the field, Siam.
Bradley arrived in Siam (Thailand) in 1835, when he was 32 years old. His professions included: evangelist, doctor, printer, writer, government advisor and an unofficial America Ambassador.
His Era of service was referred to as the Bradley Ear. The King of Siam, Mongkut, was a progressive man and was eager to learn about many subjects including Christianity, in order to propagate Buddhism.
He loved the Thai people and made such contributions to the culture as: vaccinations, natural science, establishment of schools, hospitals, dispensaries, leper colonies, urged prison reform, education for women, care for the insane and medical procedures. He performed the first surgical operation in the country.
Although after thirty years of dedicated missionary service, he could not point to one true convert, many of Bradley's contemporaries went on to China, where the convert ratio was much better. The seeds of Bradley's life full of caring and good works surely served as a seed bed for others to come and harvest.
