W A Medaris



Man, wife, two daughters, one son
Photographer: Brady & Medaris
28 Oct 1948



In the 1900 US Census James Brady is listed as a photographer.
James is the brother of Meda Brady, wife of W. A. Medaris.
It appears that William Arthur Medaris was in the photography business from about 1890 to 1910. James A Brady was partner with him for an even shorter time. Medaris takes up the insurance business after 1910 and does not return to photography

In the 1900 US census Brady is listed as a photographer and all later documents show him as a clerk for the railroad.

In 1892, James Brady’s sister, Meda, married W A Medaris (Yes, Meda Medaris). It’s only a guess, but this is probably the time that Medaris and Brady were partners.

No connection has been made between James Brady and the well-known photographer Mathew Brady
