Biographical Note

Lloyd Clayton Clark, Jr. was born in Belton, Texas, August 4th, 1923 to Lloyd C. Clark and Hattie Mae (Taylor). He attended North Texas Agricultural College (now the University of Texas at Arlington) from September 1940 to September 1942. At NTAC he edited The Shorthorn and The Summer School Breeze. Clark was commander of the cadet corps from June to September 1942--the first time ROTC was offered by the college during a summer term. Further education included a Bachelor of Science in journalism (1948) from Southern Methodist University, Dallas; Bachelor of Foreign Trade (1949) from the American Graduate School of International Management, Glendale, Arizona; and a Master of Public Administration (1972) from Arizona State University, Tempe. Clark joined the U.S. Army Enlisted Reserve Corps while an advanced corps cadet at Louisiana State University in the fall of 1942. When the Army activated the LSU ROTC students in the spring of 1943, he was assigned to the Armored Force at Fort Knox, KY. At the end of basic training, he was hospitalized with a lesion on his right lung, diagnosed as tuberculosis. After four months of hospitalization he was returned to limited duty and became editor of The Camp Hood News (Texas). Found fit for full duty in the fall of 1944, he was sent to Aberdeen Proving Ground, Maryland, where he was commissioned as a second lieutenant, Ordnance Corps, upon completion of Officer Candidate School. He served as the APG public relations officer until separated from active duty in July 1946. As a reserve officer, Clark graduated from the Command & General Staff College's resident course at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, in 1964. Returning to active duty in 1967, he served as an instructor and assistant secretary of the U.S. Army Civil Affairs School, Fort Gordon, Georgia, until July 1970. Back to civilian life, Clark remained active in the reserve, being promoted to colonel in 1975 and retiring in 1979 as director of the National Defense University's Arizona classes. Interspersed with the periods of active army service, Clark spent two decades in newspaper reporting and editing, retiring from that field of journalism as assistant editor and publisher of The Arizona Weekly Gazette (now the Arizona Business Gazette) in 1966. He founded the Council on Abandoned Military Posts - U.S.A., Inc. that year. CAMP, now known as the Council on America's Military Past, has more that 1,200 members who are interested in preserving the nation's military heritage.

Lloyd Clark and Jean Reeves of Prescott, Arizona, were married in 1950. They had three children: Roger, Cynthia (Hotchkiss), and Candyce (Eggen). His mother, Hattie May Massie, celebrated her 96th birthday in August 1993. She was the youngest of 11 children of Henry Kirby Taylor and his wife, Sallie, and resided on the campus of Arlington Training School while her father was president from 1913 to 1916 of that forerunner of UTA.

Clark co-founded (with Charles Montooth) the Rail Passenger Association of the Southwest in 1978 and was an active promoter of rail passenger service. Beginning in 1980 he was a member of the Part-time Faculty Association of Rio Salado Community College, Phoenix, teaching credit courses in Arizona history and government, and specialty classes in such diverse subjects as ""Casablanca, the Movie"" and "Trains and Rail Travel." He was a director of the Arizona Historical Society.

Separated Material

This collection contained materials that were deaccessioned as containing little historical value, or as not pertinent to the collection policy of the Division of Special Collections, University of Texas at Arlington Libraries. Much of Mr. Clark's work during his tenure as a reporter in Arizona is very enlightening about a crucial period in Arizona history, but is not relevant to a Texas-focused collection. Neither were many of the records from Mr. Clark's time in the Arizona Department of Transportation. All deaccessioned materials were returned to Lloyd Clark, Jr.
