Woodstock, Jan. 28 - The death took place this morning of Dr. Archibald M. McLay, who for 50 years has been a resident of this city. Dr. A.M. McLay was one of this city's oldest and best-known residents. For years he was prominent in municipal affairs, and took an active part in both provincial and federal politics. He first entered the city council in 1882 as an alderman and afterward occupied other positions in the council. He was a member of the board of education for 16 years, and was chairman on several occasions. He was an ardent Liberal and for years stumped the country in the interests of the late Hon. James Sutherland and other Oxford members. He was on the board of health for years and served as medical officer of health. Dr. Archibald McLay was born in Glasgow in 1843. He came to Canada with his parents in 1854 and for years lived in the county of Elgin. Surviving are his wife and three sons and five daughters: S. Walter McLay, Dean of McMaster University; Dr. Frank McLay, of Grimsby; Dr. Sam McLay, Woodstock, and Mrs. (Rev.) L. Llewellyn Brown, Detroit; Mrs. A.M. Overholt, Brantford; Mrs. O.C. Gray, Windsor, and Misses Augusta and Mabel, at home. Two brothers survive, James McLay, Appleton, N.Y., and Malcolm McLay, Frome, Ont. The late Dr. Peter McLay of Alymer was a brother. The funeral will take place on Tuesday afternoon, with interment in Woodstock.
