This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Needham Ray Clay (1893-1981)

Born April 5, 1893 in Owosso, Michigan, Ray Clay was one of three children born to Edgar and Carrie Needham.  While living and end employed as an Auto Trimmer for Westcott Motor Car Company in Springfield, Ohio, he was to marry Mary Hoose in 1916 before settling in Richmond, Indiana. 

Artistically, he studied at Earlham College in Richmond Indiana, under John M. King; at the Dayton Art Institute; and with Edward Dufner, a New York artist who taught at the Art Colony of Boothbay Harbor, Maine.  Other instructors were George H. Baker and Lawrence McConaha. 

Noted for his landscapes, he exhibited at the Hoosier Salon from the early 1930's through 1962. Needham was also a member of the Indiana Artist Club, Richmond Artist Club, and the Richmond Art Association.  He was to win the Lucrete T. Carr Prize at the Richmond Art Club exhibitions twice, the Delta Sigma Gamma purchase prize at the 1955 Hoosier Salon, and the Popular Award in 1960 at the Richmond art exhibit.

He died in February, 1981 in Johnson, Montgomery Township, Indiana.
