Bradys was a classic rags-to-riches story. He rose from bellhop to supersalesman, creating a national reputation as a savvy money man in an age filled with industrial titans and robber barons. A celebrated bon vivant, he was renowned for his limitless appetites, for his ability to pack away colossal quantities of food and drink at a single sitting, for his much-storied relationship with Lillian Russell, the world-famous entertainer, and of course, for the profusion of gaudy jewelry with which he bedecked his massive girth and from which his nickname derived.
