As a child, Mr. Clayton was interested in the Coca-Cola Company and began collecting Coke-related memorabilia. This led him to correspond with Robert W. Woodruff, the former President of the Coca-Cola Company. Through his interest in Mr. Woodruff, Clayton became interested in the artist whose illustrations graced Mr. Woodruff's Christmas cards, Athos Menaboni. In 2007 he donated a large collection of items related to Athos Menaboni to Kennesaw State University.
