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.
