Dr. Clay Johnson
R. CLAY JOHNSON,
surgeon of Fort Worth,
was born at Dawsonville,
2, 1867. His parents
were sturdy stock from
the Carolinas, the father, Samuel C.
Johnson, coming from North Carolina,
and the mother, Emily M. Johnson,
being a native of South Carolina.
The family left the Carolinas for
Georgia, where their son was born.
Dr. Johnson received his professional
degree at the age of twentyfour,
finishing his course at the College
of Physicians and Surgeons in
Baltimore, Maryland, in 1891. Miss
Alice Jester and Dr. Johnson were
married in Corsicana in 1898. Four
children have followed the union,
aged eleven, eight, four and six
years. Dr. Johnson is owner of the
sanitarium at Sixth and Lamar
streets, bearing his name. He is a
member of the Tarrant County and
Texas State Medical associations.
While never taking an active part
in political matters, he consented
upon the urging of prominent citizens
to permit the use of his name
as a candidate for membership on
the city school board and was chosen
without opposition. The Fort Worth
school buildings have attracted the
attention of civic and professional
publications in all parts of the
United States, their modern sanitation,
lighting and ventilation being
among the features that have been
complimented so highly. Dr. Johnson
served the city also as a member
of the advisory committee of
physicians that helped guard Fort
Worth against a scourge of meningitis
when that disease caused
heavy losses in Texas, and has always
been ready to render public
service for the city.
