Mount Bradley

WEST JUNEAU WEEKLY PICTURE

Mount Bradley

Mount Bradley.

Mount Bradley, also known as Mount Jumbo, is 3,337 feet high and is on Douglas Island with Douglas, Alaska at its foot. In the early years it was named Mount Jumbo, possibly after the Jumbo mining claim located near its base. The people of Douglas in 1939 petitioned the Board of Geographic names to have the mountain renamed after Frederick Worthen Bradley. Mr. Bradley, 1863 – 1933, was president of the Bunker Hill Mine and Sullivan Mine in Idaho, president of the Tacoma Smelting Co., president of the Alaska Juneau Gold Mining Co., and president of the Treadwell, Mexican, and Alaska United Gold Mining Companies – the latter three on Douglas Island southeast of Douglas. He was also a director of the First National Bank of Juneau as well as banks in San Francisco. He was awarded the Saunders Gold Medal for outstanding achievement in mining.
