Auction Catalog

Clarence Day expanded his family land holdings in Mississippi into a collection of companies that dealt with timber, plywood and oil and gas explorations in the continental U.S. and the Gulf of Mexico. He acquired, operated and held an interest in a dozen other companies, including Patterson Transfer Company, Inc., one of the mid-South?s oldest trucking firms. His enterprises also included a cattle ranch in Missouri and residential and commercial development projects, including college dormitories and hotels and motels throughout the South.

In 1960 he founded the Day Foundation. Under his leadership and driving passion to assist those in need, the foundation has awarded significant grants to initiate unique social service, leadership, arts and youth programs in Memphis and the mid-South. In recent years, Mr. Day focused his attention and support on Youth Villages, a Memphis-based organization that has become a leading private provider for children with serious emotional and behavioral problems and their families. With Mr. Day?s vision and support, Youth Villages pioneered a widely praised transitional living program that helps children in foster care become productive, independent adult citizens.
