John Clinton Clark Jr. ’38

Published in Oct. 9, 1991, issue

JOHN CLARK DIED PEACEFULLY Apr. 7, 1991, in his hometown of Binghamton, N.Y., after two operations on his ulcerated stomach. A civic leader, he will be missed for his support of many worthy causes as well as for his business activities.

John prepared at Hotchkiss School. At Princeton he roomed with Craig Smyth and Chuck Stevens, joined Charter Club, and graduated with honors in history, an interest which he pursued throughout his life, encompassing both local and Civil War history.

After graduation he joined the family business, toiletry and pharmaceutical maker ClarkCleveland Inc., and rose to the presidency. He was also involved in land development, as well as in the Boys Club, the Girls Club, United Fund, the Interracial Assn., Friends of the Library, the local historical society, and withal read a book nearly every day. He was a talented oil painter - all this without neglecting his family, to whom he was most devoted.

John is survived by his wife of 51 years, the former Frances Stone; his daughter, Aubrey Clark; his son, John C, 111 '65; eight grandchildren, three nieces, and two nephews. They have our heartfelt sympathy.
