I was born Jan. 20, 1904, at Fairbury, Neb. My parents are Mr. and Mrs. E. W. Clark. They homesteaded at Broadus, Mont. Dad is still living and resides at 609 Palmer. We came to Montana in 1921 by team and wagon from Belle Fourche, S.D. It took four days to make the trip. I was 17 years old at the time. I was in the Navy from Aug. 17, 1942, to Sept. 14, 1945. 1 worked for the Chicago-Milwaukee Railroad and the Northern Pacific also. I worked up and down the valley. In 1928 1 went into business for myself and opened the Tent and Awning Co. Now I have Clark's Upholstery. Frances G. Wilson and I were married in 1934 in Miles City. We now five at 609 Palmer. We bought the old Sam Jarvis boarding house and in 1957 we made it into an apartment house. I am active in the VFW. and the Elks. I was chairman of the March of Dimes for two years. We had an auction sale at the Sales Yards which netted $21,000 for the March of Dimes in 1950 and 1951.
