Biographical Note

Claude Feemster Clayton was born on 4 August 1909 in Tupelo, Mississippi to Claude and Mary Annis Feemster Clayton. After graduating from the University of Mississippi Law School in 1931, Clayton opened a private practice in his hometown for four years before serving three years as Lee County prosecuting attorney. In 1938, he won election as circuit judge of the First Circuit Court District of Mississippi.

Clayton resigned his judicial commission in 1940 to serve in the U.S. Army where he rose to the rank of lieutenant general. During his time in the European Theatre of World War II, the Mississippi officer organized and developed the 108th Armored Cavalry Regiment and served as commanding general with brigadier status of the 31st Infantry Division Artillery. Clayton received the Legion of Merit award as well as a Bronze Star for his military service.

After the war, Clayton returned to private practice in Tupelo as a civilian and continued to serve in the Mississippi National Guard. He retired from the Guard in 1965 as a major general and commander of the 31st Infantry Division (otherwise known as the Dixie Division).

In 1946 and 1947, Clayton conducted two unsuccessful political campaigns against incumbent U.S. Representative John Rankin for the Democratic nomination. From 1948 to 1953, he served as Tupelo city attorney.

In February 1958, President Dwight Eisenhower nominated Clayton to the U.S. District Court of Northern Mississippi, and the Senate confirmed the appointment.

When a riot occurred at the University of Mississippi in 1962 over integration and President John F. Kennedy federalized the state’s National Guard, Clayton was the commanding officer of the 31st Infantry Division. After explaining the potential conflict of interest to U.S. Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy (any arrested rioters were likely to appear before him as a civilian judge), he received an official release from military duty.

During his time on the U.S. District Court bench, Judge Clayton presided over numerous civil rights trials. These included the cases of several University of Mississippi rioters, the trial of law enforcement officers in Winona charged with beating civil rights activist Fannie Lou Hamer, voting rights cases, and the desegregation of school systems in Grenada, Sunflower, Carroll, Benton, Bolivar, and Coahoma counties.

In 1967, President Lyndon B. Johnson nominated Clayton for a seat on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit after an aide’s reported that Clayton had been “fair and just” on civil rights matters. The American Bar Association’s Standing Committee of the Federal Judiciary submitted its unanimous opinion that the nominee was “exceptionally well qualified for the appointment,” and the Senate confirmed it on 26 October 1967.

In July 1968, Clayton suffered a stroke. He died a year later on 4 July 1969 while in the Veteran’s Administration Hospital in Washington, DC. Clayton lies buried in Glenwood Cemetery in Tupelo, Mississippi.

Clayton was married to Bronson Elizabeth Munday. Together, they had three children: Mary Munday Tyrone, Bronson Oosterhuis, and Claude F. Clayton Jr. Judge Clayton was a member of the First United Methodist Church, American Bar Association, Community Development Foundation, American Legion, Veterans of Foreign Wars, Mississippi State Bar, Sigma Alpha Epsilon, Phi Alpha Delta, Kiwanis Club, and the National Lawyers Club. He served as district chair of the Boy Scouts, Lee County disaster chair of the American Red Cross (1935-56), vice president of the Tupelo Chamber of Commerce (1933-34), and president of the Lee County Bar Association (1956-57). Clayton’s portrait hangs in the federal courthouse in Aberdeen, Mississippi.

Scope and Content

The Claude F. Clayton Collection consists primarily of 823 case files from his tenure on the U.S. District Court of Northern Mississippi (1958-67) and the U.S. Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals (1967-69). These appear in boxes 1 through 25. Oversized case files reside in Box 33. Although some of the contents may duplicate the official court records of the cases (such as motions, briefs, and opinions), chambers papers can provide valuable insight into court deliberations and the internal workings of the judiciary since they may include material created prior to the issuance of a judicial decision, such as case notes, draft memoranda and opinions, correspondence with colleagues, and research. The collection preserves the integrity of Judge Clayton’s original file names and arrangement – case files are arranged alphabetically by case title. Of particular interest to researchers will be the many rulings Clayton issued on civil rights cases.

Additional subject files related to his judicial tenure as well as correspondence appear in Series 2 located in Boxes 25 through 27. These include three files originally entitled “Crackpot” containing correspondence received by the judge on controversial issues like civil rights.

Series 3 holds files related to Clayton’s service in the Mississippi National Guard (in Box 27).

Series 4 consists of records related to Clayton’s unsuccessful 1946 and 1948 campaigns to unseat U.S. Representative John Rankin (Boxes 28 through 30, with oversized Box 31 holding newspapers on the subject).

Series 5 contains memorabilia. Oversized Box 32 holds certificates and awards received by Clayton, while Boxes 33 through 44 hold military apparel, flags, a judge’s robe, and memorabilia.
