On October 8, 1999, the Reynolds-Alberta Museum accepted the James J. Bradley Distinguished Service Award at the annual meeting of the Society of Automotive Historians, Hershey Pennsylvania.
The Bradley Award is presented to a deserving library or archive for the preservation of historic materials relating to motor vehicles of the world.
