Judge Clinton DeWitt Boyd was the son of Edward H. and Hester (Day) Boyd. He graduated from Miami University in 1908 where he was one of four founders of the national college fraternity, Phi Kappa Tau. He studied law at the University of Cincinnati and graduated from the University of Michigan Law School in 1910. He established a law office in Middletown and in 1929 he was appointed to the Common Pleas bench and was twice re-elected to that office, retiring in 1937. He was active in Republican politics and ran unsuccessfully for a number of statewide offices.

He married Clara Cretors and the couple had three children Betty (Mrs. Van W. Kelly), Clinton DeWitt, Jr. and Robert. Clara died in 1942 and Boyd married again to Sophie Marie Schaeuble Huntington, widow of Edward Huntington.

Boyd died in a car accident near London, Ohio on the way to the 1950 Ohio Republican State Convention.
