Second Lt. and Aviator Greayer Clover is memorialized throughout LA County. In East Los Angeles, right around where Figueroa meets Marmion Way, a tiny little speck of green exists. This is Greayer's Oak Park. On Arbor Day 1919 some of Clover's friends planted a live oak tree there in his honor. In addition was a bronze plaque at the base of the new sapling that read: "Planted Arbor Day, 1919, in memory of Lieut. Greayer Clover, who fell 'somewhere in France,' Aug. 30, 1918.” Though there are about half a dozen oaks there today, I could not determine if any were the original. The plaque is long gone, so I suspect not. Nonetheless the park still owes "Grubby" Clover its name.
