He served in the United States Army Medical Corps and was a captain in a field hospital. When Dr. Bryant left Millinocket to join WWI, residents gathered to wish him a safe return and the fathers of the town presented him with a watch as a gift. He was also a deacon in his local congregation.

Mackay was considered an astounding dentist in the area, and graduated from Baltimore Medical School in 1900, before relocating to Millinocket. He opened his practice first at the Windsor Hotel, but towards the end of his career, he operated from his home. He served as a dentist in the town for 62 years.
