He was born Oct. 12, 1842 in Pennsylvania and the family moved to Illinois when he was 8 years old. He served during the Civil war in the Ninety-second Illinois mounted infantry. After graduating from Northwestern medical college at Chicago in 1870, he came to McGregor. For the past 20 years he has conducted a private hospital here. When the first Iowa board of health was created Dr. Clark became a member and served 13 years. He was president of the first state board of medical examiners.
