Bradford kept in touch with the other workers throughout his life, a family friend told the newspaper. He gave interviews, was recognized in Rushmore ceremonies, and once made an appearance on the television show "What's My Line."

After the building of the mountain memorial was completed in 1941, Bradford served in the United States military, owned a bar, and ran his own construction business.
