W. TATE BRADY
Photo Tate Brady

        W. Tate Brady was a traveling man for Bradley, Metcalfe & Co., of Milwaukee, Wis., before he came to Tulsa to live in 1891. With his uncle, he engaged in the mercantile business on Main street, north of the Frisco tracks. Later he erected a building on First Street between Main street and Boston avenue and fronting south. The Brady hotel, at the corner of Main and Archer streets, stands as a monument to his name. He had large real estate holding and other interests in Tulsa. After statehood he took an active interest in politics and was the close personal friend of C. N. Haskell Oklahoma's first governor. For a few years before his death two years ago he lived a more quiet life. His widow lives at 620 N. Denver ave. She and their children maintain the family's large Tulsa interests.
