Robert Hazlett Bradford, one of the most prominent young men of Butler county, and cashier of the well known financial institution known as the Eldorado National Bank, at Eldorado, was born at Alma, Neb., Oct. 8, 1880, a son of James and Frances (London) Bradford. As a boy he became a member of the famly[sic] of his aunt, Mrs. Robert Harmon Hazlett, of Eldorado, and he secured his early educational discipline in the public schools of that place. He was then matriculated in the University of Kansas, where he completed the prescribed literary course and was graduated as a member of the class of 1901, receiving his degree from that excellent institution. He engaged in the manufacturing business at Kansas City, Mo., during the years 1902 and 1903, and in 1904 became the bookkeeper for the Farmers' and Merchants' National Bank at Eldorado. In 1907 he was promoted to the position of cashier of that institution, but resigned in June, 1909, to accept a similar executive position with the Eldorado National Bank, of which he is also a director. His uncle, R. H. Hazlett, is the president of the institution, which has gained notable popularity and high reputation under their management. Mr. Bradford is a member of the Kansas State Bankers' Association, and aside from his banking interests the president of the Eldorado Electric and Refrigerating Company. He is a Knight Templar Mason and member of the Mystic Shrine, and is also affiliated with the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks. He is very fond of athletics and during the years 1907 to 1909 held the tennis championship for the State of Kansas, but did not defend the title in 1910. He is a close student of banking in all its various relations.
