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.
