Betty Baume Clark
J. Desmond Clark
This e-memorial was established in
February of 2002 to help honor the memory of the late John Desmond
Clark, a pioneer in studies of world prehistory. Desmond was a legend
in his own time, leaving footprints on every continent. His lifetime
of achievement will continue to impress us. His relentless pursuit
of knowledge about the human past will continue to inspire us.
Desmond passed away on February 14th. His wife of 64 years, Betty
Baume Clark, survived him by only two months. Many of the tributes
contained here were written for Desmond by friends, colleagues,
and admirers before Betty passed away in April. We invite you to
add your tributes and memories to those offered here by others;
a word, a sentence, a memory, a story, a poem, a prayer, a "jolly
good show," a picture, or any other expression that you might
wish to share with the global community that the Clarks created.
Follow the link below to record your thoughts. Contributions of
any length are appropriate. Explore the photos in the links below,
and contribute your own photos to firstname.lastname@example.org
via jpeg attachment (< 2.0 megabytes).
Please inform any and all who might wish to join in remembering
Desmond and Betty here. If you wish to contribute by regular mail,
you may write to Elizabeth Agrilla, Museum of Vertebrate Zoology,
University of California at Berkeley, 94720-3160, USA. She will
arrange, with your permission, for your comments to be included
on the website.
Late in 2002, all of the written and photographic tributes will
be printed, with copies given to the Clark family and the U.C. Berkeley
Anthropology Library. We will never overcome losing Desmond and
Betty, and we shall always miss them. Please join in remembering
them, saluting them, and honoring their memory with your thoughts
