James A. Clark, Jr. Family Papers
The Senator James A. Clark, Jr. Family Papers (previously housed in the Howard Community College Library) date from 1813 through 2007 measure 6.6 linear feet. The bulk of the collection dates from Senator Clark’s service during World War II (Series 3) through his death in 2006.
There is limited material regarding other Clark family members; however, the collection includes some items that provide details about the family, such as Senator Clark’s handwritten memoirs, Jim Clark: Soldier, Farmer, Legislator (Series 1), published in 1999, Alda Hopkins Clark’s auto biography Hold Hard (Series 1), and three family scrapbooks (Series 7) that include family photographs from the early 1900s.
