William Daniel Clark was born 17 January 1896 to Frederick Clark and Martha E. Stone Clark in Newton, Suffolk, Massachusetts. His mother died within a week. His father remarried a woman named Eva.
Bill Clark graduated from the Newton Grammar School, 21 June 1907. He was also awarded a classical academic diploma by the University of the State of New York, after completing exams in Katonah High School in June 1914. Bill Clark served in the military during World War I and spent at least some time in the 18th Spruce Squadron stationed in Vancouver, WA.
Gertrude and Bill Clark were divorced in the 1940s. Some time later he married Sade Arey Huntington, the widow of my great uncle, Walter Huntington. Bill had no children of his own but his stepson, Robert Huntington, preserved his memorabilia.
