Glendale, California Biographies

Dr. Fay G. Stone


        Dr. Fay G. Stone was born October 5, 1892, in South Glendale. He has, therefore, the distinction of being one of Glendale’s oldest American native sons, and is the only professional man in the city who has been a resident of the valley all his life. He is a son of A. P. and Ella (Cornwell) Stone. His father was born near Springfield, Missouri, and his mother was a native of Arkansas. They came to the valley in 1890, from Springfield, Missouri, and settled on the Santa Eulalia Ranch, where they lived for sixteen years. They are now residents of Modesto, California.

        Dr. Stone is the youngest of a family of four children. The others are: Alta, wife of Robert Coffin, of Modesto, California; Alma M., wife of Daniel Kelty, of Glendale; and Ralph, a resident of Astoria, Oregon. He attended the Tropico Grammar School, the Glendale Union High School, and graduated from the Dental College of the University of Southern California with the class of 1914, and within thirty days thereafter was established in his profession in Glendale. In September 1917, he was commissioned a Lieutenant in the Dental Corps of the army and was sent to Camp Fremont. At the time of the armistice was signed he was at Camp Mills, equipped for duty over-seas. He was later sent to Camp Stewart where he was mustered out of the service on January 28, 1919, and returned to Glendale and his practice. He is an Elk and a charter member of the American Legion.

        At Los Angeles, on June 19, 1919, Dr. Stone married Bernice McCann, of Los Angeles. They reside at 636 North Central Avenue.
