S Parker Cl;ark, a popular and esteemed young citizen of Ogden, has for the past six years been identified with the Ogden State Bank in the capacity of cashier. He is numbered among the worthy native sons of Boone county, his birth having occurred in Ogden in November, 1881. His parents, Dr Orson and Lucy Emma ( Sylvester) Clark, took up their abode among the pioneer residents of Boone county in 1869. A sketch of the father appears on another page of this work.
S Parker Clark was reared and educated in the place of his nativity and following his graduation from the public shools entered Drake University at Des Moines, where he completed the pharmaceutical course in 1902. Returning to Ogden, he there worked in a drug store for six years, on the expiration of which period he purchased the business and continued its conduct until 1908. In that year he disposed of the store and accepted the position of cashier in the Ogden State Bank, in which capacity he has remained continuously since, making a highly creditable and commendable record and enjoying an enviable reputation in financial circles. He is likewise a stockholder in the instituion.
In March 1904, Mr Clark was united in marriage to Miss Grace Upton, a daughter of Harley and Ruth (Bamun) Upton, who were pioneer settlers of Boone county and have passed away. Mr and Mrs Clark have one daughter Ruth Louise, who is six years of age.
Politically Mr Clark is a republican, while his religious faith is that of the Congregational church. He is a worthy exemplar of the Masonic fraternity and also belongs to the Knights of Pythias. In the community where practically his entire life has been spent he has a circle of friends which is almost coextensive with the circle of his acquaintances.
