Lou Bader

Lou Bader's career has spanned a cross-section of the arts: A professional singer on radio and stage; a television personality and movie director/producer (The Magnificent Mullato; a producer and director at the Pasadena Playhouse, the Burbank Civic Light Opera and the Glendale Light Opera; a sculptor in bronze; and more recently an author. He has also been a building contractor, realtor, aircraft designer, and county commissioner. A subdivision near the lovely San Francisco Peaks in Flagstaff, Arizona, was created by the artist and bears his name — Baderville.

Although he was born in Cincinnati, Ohio, Bader was raised in the rugged logging town of Flagstaff, Arizona, which gave him an early respect for animals and all living creatures. This affinity is evident in the details of his bronze animal sculptures, as well as his writing.
