During the depression years, the Roosevelt Co. Flying Club was organized under the guidance of George “Dewey” Lowers. This club established the Wolf Point Airport and the building of the first hanger. WPA funds were used with assistance from local citizens and the City-County Airport Board. In 1952, Lyman Clayton, Jr., once a student of Dewey Lowers, first offered the area charter service. In 1957, he joined a Northeastern Montana flying pioneer, Hub Ames of Scobey, in enlarging this service to include certified air ambulance and taxi service. Mr. Clayton was actively involved in the operations of the airport. He served for many years on the Wolf Point-Roosevelt County Airport Board. In 1989, the Wolf Point International Airport was renamed to L.M. Clayton Airport in honor of Mr. Lyman Clayton, Jr. He also served as the Mayor of the City of Wolf Point from 1958-1961 and owned and operated the local mortuary.
