The Malvern Leader
April 21, 1892
Dr. P. B. Clark, editor of the Beacon, died at his home in Tabor Sunday evening at 9:30 o’clock, of congestion of the bowels. Deceased was born at Guildhall, Vt., studied medicine in Oberlin, Ann Arbor, Cleveland and Keokuk (receiving his diploma at the latter place), practiced twenty years in Cedar County, except the years he was in the army, located in Tabor in 1874, was five years Postmaster and six years editor of the Beacon.
The largely attended funeral at the Congregational Church Tuesday afternoon, during which the business men voluntarily closed their business places, attested, as did also the words of Father Todd and Rev. J. W. Cowan, the prominence and high moral and social standing of the Doctor in the community. Dr. Clark was a man of firm and unwavering convictions and unyielding integrity. Through his paper as in the more private walks of life he was a firm defender of the right and a relentless enemy of wrong.
Aggressive and progressive in spirit and ever zealous for the progress and good name of him chosen town, he will be greatly missed from the community where he has so long resided.
