Have You Met Rutgers-Newark?
Bradley Hall (110 Warren St) is the place to shop, in the Barnes & Noble bookstore. Two academic departments -- Arts, Media and Culture, and Urban Education -- are in Bradley, as are the Learning Center, Academic Foundations Center, Bradley Theatre and the campus post office.
Home to the art and television classes, a theater, post office branch and bookstore, Bradley Hall was named for the man whose lone vote determined a Presidential election in 1876. Joseph P. Bradley graduated from Rutgers College in 1836 and was admitted to the New Jersey Bar in 1839. This patent, commercial and corporation lawyer ran unsuccessfully for Congress in 1862, but he was, however appointed to the U.S. Supreme Court in 1870 by President Grant. In 1877, Bradley was appointed to the Electoral Commission established by Congress to resolve the disputed 1876 election between Rutherford B. Hayes and Samuel Tilden. His vote for Hayes determined the outcome. Formerly part of a Prudential Insurance Company printing plant and distribution center, Bradley Hall was acquired by the university in 1971.
