Biographical history

Civil engineer, born in Brisbane, educated at Ipswich Grammar School and University of Sydney, graduating B.E. with the University Gold Medal in 1889. He joined the New South Wales Department of Public Works in 1891. In August 1910 he unsuccessfully applied for the foundation chair of engineering in the new University of Queensland. Bradfield was associated with a great range of engineering work, the highlight being the opening of the Sydney Harbour Bridge in 1932. He retired from the public service in 1933 and in 1934 was appointed consulting engineer for the design, fabrication and construction of the Story Bridge in Brisbane. He later served as technical adviser to the constructors of the Hornibrook Highway near Brisbane and helped to plan and design the University of Queensland's new site at St Lucia; the university admitted him to an ad eund. doctorate of engineering in 1935. -- excerpted from Australian Dictionary of Biography
