Henry Clay Ledyard (1879-1950) was born in Sturgis, Michigan. He graduated from the Canton Theological School at St. Lawrence University in 1912. Originally ordained as a Congregational minister in 1907, he was ordained a Universalist minister in 1909 and served parishes in Northfield, Vermont; Cortland, New York; Hutchinson, Kansas; and Brockton, Massachusetts. In 1937, he left church ministry and accepted a position as director of the CIO Quarry Workers' International Union. He spent the remainder of his life as a tireless advocate for labor issues. Ledyard died in Phoenix, Arizona, at the age of 70. A biographical article on Ledyard can be found in the Annual Journal of the Universalist Historical Society, Volume V, 1964-65.
