Will Clayton left his mark on global trade throughout the improvement of Anderson, Clayton & Co., the world's biggest cotton advertising enterprise; he made an both vital galvanize on overseas economics and politics via unique and very important carrier within the country division in the course of 3 the most important years of global history.
The politico-economic philosophy that might Clayton built as cotton service provider to the area supplied the foundation for his unusual provider as Assistant Secretary of country and as Undersecretary of country for monetary Affairs and prompted the process foreign occasions way over is mostly realized.
"When the whole tale of the genesis of the Marshall Plan is advised, it's going to develop into glaring that the foundation used to be Will Clayton's; this means that he'll have an organization area of interest in background, for this, if for not anything else," wrote John Dalgleish in Everybody's Weekly (London) in 1947.

The significant occasions in Will Clayton's historical past that formed his personality and built his own philosophy are the following portrayed via person who had a special chance to view her topic at shut variety throughout the major classes of his careers in executive and enterprise. during this short bio-
graphy, his eldest daughter, Ellen Clayton Garwood, in detail yet objectively lines the evolution of Clayton's lifelike internationalism.

But the tale isn't really all certainly one of good fortune. Will Clayton sought after greater than whatever to determine his state imagine club in a global alternate association, for the constitution of which he had labored so challenging. His unhappiness here—partially offset through the good fortune of the overall contract on price lists and Trade—finds counterpart all through those pages within the stumbling blocks he needed to triumph over in his improvement as a human being.
And person he emerges—son, husband, and father; businessman and statesman—whose
measure, with its shadow and its highlights, may still function powerful encouragement for these who
would serve their nation and their global with both clever devotion.
This publication, for this reason, brings a word of convinced optimism. Will Clayton began as a negative boy one of the bewildered humans of the reconstructed South. He emerged a statesman who drew out of nonetheless worse confusion on the planet a application of hopeful and uplifting readability. His personal phrases, in a cable from Geneva, August 15, 1947, describe the problem he met—a problem that recurs in several shape at the present time: "A nice chance to aid Europe carry herself completely out of a morass of bilateralism and restrictionism has floated in to us on a floodtide of destruction. If we fail to grab this chance now it might by no means go back other than in all probability after a 3rd international War."
