Dr. William Brady, a native of Canandaigua whose medical advice reached millions of Americans through a nationally syndicated newspaper column, is dead at the age of 91. Dr. Brady died of uremia Feb. 25 at his Beverly Hills, Calif., home, but no announcement of his death was made to the media until yesterday.
Dr. Brady was born March 26, 1880, in Canandaigua. He received his medical degree from the University of Buffalo Medical School in 1901, and began medical practice in Buffalo in the same year. In 1914, he began editing a health column that was syndicated in daily and Sunday newspapers throughout the United States and Canada.
After practicing medicine 11 years, he gave up his practice to write full time. Dr. Brady maintained that nutrition is the key to good health and urged the use of vitamins and minerals as a basic part of the daily diet. He considered alcohol a narcotic, and advised youth to refrain from smoking until the age of 21.
