Clark Clarion_edited_edited.jpg


We have editions of The Clark Clarion, a special edition of The United Methodist Reporter newspaper that was published from March 1976 - July 1985. The front page was devoted to Clark Memorial news and happenings. We also have copies of church newsletters, United Methodist conference reports, and church bulletins.



Our archive contains materials gathered over the decades to create definitive histories of Clark Memorial to share with the congregation and our larger community. This includes completed publications, newspaper clippings, drama scripts, and biographical information about various church members. We are also gathering oral histories from Clarkites, which can be accessed from our archive.
