Biography

Son of Charles E. Clark and Catherine D'Arcy.

Husband of Louise Evelyn Walker.

Father of Dale Randall Clark.

Ed Clark was a long-time resident of Oakridge, Lane, Oregon and a business developer. He was born near Curtin in Douglas County, Oregon on December 29, 1897. His parents were Charles E. and Catherine D'Arcy Clark. In 1909, during the flurry of railroad constuction from Natron into Oakridge, the Clark family moved to Blakelyville-later known as Eula-on the upper river (Middle Fork of the Willamette), and lived briefly in Hazel Dell (later Oakridge) in 1910. In 1911, the Clark family settled permanently in Oakridge. A half a century ago, Ed Clark built the first automobile garage in Oakridge in 1920, and three years later built a larger garage and service station on the southwest corner of what is now known as First and Oak Streets, which he operated until 1937, when he moved over to the then new highway and developed the Oak Shopping Center.[1]
