Notes for ALLEN J. BRADER:From "Portrait and Biographical Record, Lehigh, Northampton and Carbon Counties, PA" (page 315):

CAPTAIN ALLEN J. BRADER. Lehigh County sent many brave, patriotic men to the front during the Civil War, that trying time which tested a man's loyalty and devotion to his country. Among them was Mr. Brader, who won honor as a soldier, and rose from the ranks to an important official position in his regiment. He is now quietly pursuing farming in North Whitehall Township and has done good service here in the aid he has given his fellow agriculturists in promoting the growth of this part of the county.

The Brader family originally came from Germany, and the first to locate in America made settlement in Northampton County in a very early day. On his grandmother's side, our subject is of Revolutionary stock. The family, which bore the name of Frantz, consisted of seven members, all of whom were killed by the Indians and were buried in one grave in Salisbury Township.

Captain Brader, of this sketch, passed his boyhood days in Allentown and when sixteen years of age decided to learn the trade of a machinist. He entered the agricultural works, and for three years was in the employ of his father, who in company with John Young, was the proprietor of that establishment. He followed this line of trade until the outbreak of the late war, when, on October 22, 1861, he enlisted as a 1st Sergent and went to the front as a member of Company K, Fifty-fourth Pennsylvania Infantry. He was promoted to 1st Lieutenant on January 1, 1864. They operated principally in the Shenandoah Valley and May 15, 1864, fought the battle of Newmarket. Later they participated in the engagements at Piedmont, Lexington, VA., Lynchburg, Snicker's Gap and Winchester, at which latter place Mr. Brader was captured and was confined in prison in Columbia, S.C. where he was compelled to stay for seven months. He was also captured on another occasion on the Potomac River, and held for two months in Richmond and Libby Prisons. Our subject was honorably discharged in March, 1865, after which he returned to Allentown and followed his former business for a time in company with his brother Frank, under the firm name of Brader Bros."

"Mr. Brader embraces every opportunity for aiding and advancing the interests of the community in which he makes his home. He belongs to the Democratic party in politics, and on all subjects his judgment is good. Well educated, he has naturally been called upon to fill responsible positions, and served as School Director for some time. He owns a half-interest in one hundred acres of land in this township, on which he resides and from which he derives a satisfactory income." (A resident of Cherry Ford since the spring of 1869).

Notes for HENRY MILTON BRADER:Excerpt from Article "What's in a School Name?" the Newark Post, October 1999.

In 1989, the elementary school in Four Seasons off Route 896 south of Newark was named after longtime district principal Henry Brader.

Brader grew up in Laury's Station, PA, where he attended a small, two-room school. He received a bachelor of science degree from Muhlenberg College, attended Kuntztown State Teachers College. He later earned a master's degree in school administration from Lehigh University.

He began working for the Newark District in 1948. "We were a very small district back then. We had about 800 pupils and 52 staff members," Brader said. "By the time I retired we had 17,700 pupils." Former public information officer for the district and long-time arts editor for the Newark Post Newspaper, Phil Toman recalled Brader as being well respected by both parents and students and loved being in contact with them. "Henry Brader did work in the district's main office for a while, but he liked to be with kids, so he went back to being a school administrator."

Brader worked closely with then school superintendent, Wilmer E. Shue, who also later had a school named after him, and was involved in decisions relating to the tremendous building of new schools in the area. Brader said he was shocked when a school was named after him. "My wife says I turned white when I heard the news," he said, recently, with a laugh. Brader continues to reside in the Newark area and periodically visits Brader Elementary.
