In 1885 a young colored boy entered the offices of Dr. A.P. Herron, a white dentist of Indianapolis. This boy Grant H. Clay who later became the well known Dr. G.H. Clay of Indianapolis learned all that he could as apprentice from his kindly instructor and then in order to comply with the state laws entered the Indianapolis State University of Medicine (since closed). He was graduated and received his diploma in 1898. This marked the beginning of a long and useful career in dentistry which extended over thirty-five years. The death of Dr. Clay closed a life which was full of inspiration to the youth of Indianapolis.
