Zorro Bradley was an archeologist who worked for the National Park Service for more than 30 years. He came to Alaska in 1972 to take on the job of chief of the Cooperative Park Studies Unit (CPSU) on the University of Alaska Fairbanks campus, where he also served as adjunct professor of archeology. As one of the first National Park Service anthropologists in Alaska, he helped plan the new park areas established by passage of the Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act (ANILCA) in 1980. He also was involved with planning and facilitating the Park Service's subsistence research, which was used in formulating the subsistence provision of ANILCA (Title 8). As chief of the CPSU, his major tasks were to investigate archeological and historic sites for possible inclusion in the proposed new national park areas and to study, on behalf of the newly established Native regional corporations, the historic, subsistence, religious and cemetery sites for possible transfer to the corporations as part of their land selections under the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act (ANCSA). After retiring from the Park Service, he became the Arctic Regional Director for the Division of Subsistence in the Alaska Department of Fish and Game until he retired again in 1983. Zorro Bradley passed away in 2010.
