Biography

Born on a farm near Mooresville, Indiana, Bray attended the public schools of Mooresville, Indiana. He was graduated from Indiana University Law School at Bloomington in 1927 and was admitted to the bar the same year.

He served as prosecuting attorney of the fifteenth judicial district of Indiana, Martinsville, Indiana from 1926 to 1930. He commenced the private practice of law in Martinsville, Indiana, in 1930.

Called to active duty from the US Army Reserve June 21, 1941, with the rank of captain and served with a tank company throughout the Pacific campaign, receiving the Silver Star. After the war, he was transferred to Military Government and served nine months in Korea as deputy property custodian. Bray was released from active duty in November 1946 with the rank of colonel. He returned to private law practice in Martinsville, Indiana.

Bray was elected as a Republican to the Eighty-second and to the eleven succeeding Congresses (January 3, 1951 – January 3, 1975). Bray voted in favor of the Civil Rights Acts of 1957,[1] 1960,[2] 1964,[3] and 1968,[4] as well as the 24th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution and the Voting Rights Act of 1965.[5][6] He was an unsuccessful candidate for reelection in 1974 to the Ninety-fourth Congress. He resumed the practice of law.
