Hay, Robert, writer and scientist, was born at Ashton-under-Lynn, Lancashire, England, May 19, 1835, of Scotch ancestry. He was educated in the local schools and the College London, and took a special course under Prof. Huxley. Soon after completing his education, his brother in Geary county, Kan., sent him copies of the Junction City Union, which aroused his interest in American affairs. In 1871 he came to the United States and located at Junction City. For several years he was engaged in teaching and normal institute work, at the same time writing on historical and economic topics and making geological research, in which he visited all parts of Kansas. In 1895 he made a special report of the underground waters of Kansas for the United States geological survey. One of his articles, published in the Kansas Historical Collections, is a history of the great seal of the state. Mr. Hay died at Junction City on Dec. 14, 1895, soon after he had completed the geological report above mentioned.
