Tributes to
J. Desmond Clark


I spent a wonderful and very memorable field session with Desmond and Betty in Ethiopia in the early 1970s. Although conditions were rough, the camp was always beautifully organized (right down to the pink toilet seat) and the archaeology fascinating.

I will always carry the image of Desmond fording a river, impeccably dressed in khaki, with his shoes in one hand and his pants neatly folded over his arm. He had a style all his own as did Betty and they made a formidable team. I wish I had been able to keep in touch more.
