Obituary: Ted Bradshaw

By Susanne Rockwell

Ted Bradshaw, a UC Davis professor of community development who helped California communities grapple with base closures, energy issues and creating healthy social systems, died Aug. 5 while jogging near his home in Oakland. He was 63.

Trained as a rural sociologist, Bradshaw came to the Department of Human and Community Development as an assistant professor in 1995 after a nearly
20-year career as a researcher and lecturer at UC Berkeley. He made full professor in June.

Bradshaw was a leader in the areas of rural development, community development and energy policy. Most recently, he chaired the effort to
establish the new Center for the Study of Regional Change and was appointed last year as director of the Gifford Center for Population Studies, which
focuses on population issues in California’s Central Valley.2006
