Biography

American clinical psychologist, interested in astrology since 1927.

A graduate of Columbia University, Clark also studied art at the Maryland Institute and at Columbia's Teacher's College. He belonged to the Illinois Psychiatric Association and to the American Psychiatric Association. He also practiced psychology in the U.S. Army.

He joined AFA August 1959 and became Trustee of its building fund. He is best remembered for his series of blind trials of natal chart interpretation that he conducted 1959-1961.
