What can you do with a Gustavus History major? Perhaps better to ask, is there anything you can’t do?

Following graduation, Bradley Peterson, History Honors, ’98, worked for Anderson Consulting (now Accenture). He then went to law school at Hamline, receiving his JD in 2005. For a time he lobbied on behalf of the American Heart Association. Currently Bradley is an attorney and partner at Flaherty Hood, P.A., in St. Paul. He works with and lobbies on behalf of cities and towns in rural Minnesota, including St. Peter. Brad and his spouse Amy Miller (’98) have two young sons, Soren and Jonas.

This past October, Professor Greg Kaster caught up with Bradley over lunch at Mai Village in Saint Paul. Brad recalled that he and his mom had met with Greg when Brad was a prospective student visiting Gustavus.

In the Department of Coincidence: Bradley and History Professor Glenn Kranking were Gustavus classmates.
