Note:

William Lockhart Clayton (1880-1966) co-founded Anderson, Clayton & Co., a leading cotton merchandiser that was headquartered in Houston from 1916. He served on the Committee of Cotton Distribution of the War Industries Board during World War I. During WWII he held a number of important government positions leading to his appointment as Assistant Secretary of State for Economic Affairs in 1944, where he was instrumental in the development of the Marshall Plan. In the late '40s he returned to Houston but remained active and respected in the economic community continuing to voice his support for free trade. Through the Clayton Fund he contributed to many philanthropic causes, most notably to Johns Hopkins University, Tufts University and the University of Texas.
