At school Lay was a good student and was prominent in various activities, especially in rowing. Entering Yale in the sophomore year, he rowed on his class crew, was a member of Psi Upsilon and Elihu Club. He was also active in football, being a friend of Walter Camp, who at the time was developing the American game. . . After leaving Yale, he studied law at the Columbia Law School for one year, and worked in a law office in Erie, Pa., and then in the office of Harrison and Bond in Baltimore. . . His law practice was interrupted early in 1895, when he returned to St. Paul’s, intending to stay for one year to help out as a master after the death of the first Rector. He remained for thirty-five years. During his years at the School, his work was chiefly in the Mathematics Department and his classes did well, even during those trying years when the College Board Examinations were being introduced.
