Guy Payne, Jr., was born on February 6, 1907, in Cedar Grove, NJ. He 'prepared' at Montclair Academy, Montclair, NJ, and graduated Union College in Schenectady, NY, in June 1928. He obtained his medical degree in 1932 from Columbia College of Physicians and Surgeons. From the Associate Dean's letter of recommendation during his third year: "He has done very satisfactory work at this school and has an average grade of a little better than B for his three years work. He is a young man of pleasant personality, with good manners and some cultural background, and appears to get along with students and instructors. His father is a physician and he has been brought up in good medical traditions."[1] Dr. Payne, Sr. served as Medical Superintendent at Overbrook Hospital for the Insane, Cedar Grove.

Dr. Payne, Jr. interned and served his residency at Newark City Hospital between 1932 and 1934. He served in the following areas:
