MATTHEW BRADY
For nearly a quarter century, Matthew Brady has been connected with the public administration in San Francisco, and in the various positions he has filled he has discharged his duties with conspicuous ability and in a manner to command the admiration of his fellow citizens. He is now district attorney of the city and county of San Francisco. In this city he was born April 1, 1875, his parents being Thomas F. and Elizabeth (Murray) Brady.

Mr. Brady acquired his early education in the public schools of San Francisco and received his professional training at Hastings College of Law, the law department of the University of California. In 1908, he was appointed a member of the civil service commission by Mayor Edward R. Taylor, and served for two years. In January, 1913, he was again appointed to the board by Mayor James Rolph, Jr., and in 1914 he was elected by his associates as president of the commission. On November 3, 1914, Mr. Brady was further honored by Mayor Rolph, when the latter appointed him to fill out an unexpired term as judge of the police court in San Francisco. He was regularly elected to this office in 1918, and upon the bench made an honorable and praiseworthy record. He was chosen by the voters for the office of district attorney of the city and county of San Francisco, and in the fulfillment of the manifold responsibilities of this position he has amply justified the confidence placed in him.

On January 30, 1915, Mr. Brady was married to Miss Edith Crome of San Francisco, and they now make their home at 1445 Tenth avenue.
