Son of John and Clara Louise Stone Hay.
Hay died when he fell 60 feet from a window in the New Haven House, in New Haven Connecticut. He apparently was sitting on the window sill to get relief from the heat of the evening, fell asleep and fell.

He was a graduate from Yale in 1898, and was in town to celebrate the commencement ceremonies for the year.
He was just getting his start in political life; he had just finished a session as consul for the USA at Pretoria, South Africa, and was about to be appointed assistant secretary to President McKinley when the accident occurred.

His funeral on June 25, 1901 was the first time that Wade Chapel was used for that purpose.
