Dates:
1883, 1883-1954, 1883-1954 and undated
Notes:
Austin H. Clark (1880-1954) was born in Wellesley, Massachusetts. He received his A.B. from Harvard in 1903, and by 1906 his interests had focused on marine biology. From 1906 to 1907 he served as Acting Chief of the Scientific Staff of the United States Bureau of Fisheries Steamer, Albatross
Clark joined the staff of the United States National Museum in 1908 as Honorary Collaborator in the Division of Marine Invertebrates and was appointed Assistant Curator of the Division in 1909. He was promoted to the position of Curator of the Division of Echinoderms in 1920 when the echinoderm collection was removed from the Division of Marine Invertebrates and made a separate division. Clark held the position of Curator until his retirement in 1950 at which time he was made an Honorary Associate in Zoology, a position he retained until his death
Clark's principal research field was in the class Crinoidea, but he also did research in the areas of oceanography, marine biology, ornithology, and entomology. Clark was able to gain access to specimens collected on various international expeditions, including the Canadian Arctic Expedition and the Siboga Expedition, due to a reciprocal exchange agreement between the United States National Museum and foreign institutions
Clark displayed a deep interest in scientific journalism and was one of the first to realize the applicability of radio and television to the dissemination of scientific news and ideas. He helped develop the weekly radio talks aired by the Smithsonian from 1923 to 1926 in cooperation with the Carnegie Institution of Washington and various government agencies. In 1925 Clark and the Smithsonian were instrumental in establishing a series of radio broadcasts in the Boston area. Clark was appointed Director of Press Service for the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) in 1928. He also served as Press Relations Officer for the Eighth Pan-American Scientific Congress, 1940, and the AAAS Centennial Celebration, 1948
Summary:
These papers include incoming and outgoing correspondence; papers documenting Clark's participation in organizations outside the Smithsonian; records relating to the administration of the Division of Echinoderms; descriptive notes on specimen collections; bibliographic references; Addison Emery Verrill material maintained by Clark; charts and diagrams depicting the comparative bathymetric distribution of crinoids in the Atlantic and Indo-Pacific Oceans; and a scrapbook containing postcards received by Clark in connection with a nomenclature question concerning Enerinus

Historical Note

Austin H. Clark (1880-1954) was born December 17, 1880, in Wellesley, Massachusetts. His childhood study of butterflies initiated his interest in natural history. At the age of 23 Clark graduated from Harvard University (A.B., 1903). By 1906 his zoological interests had focused on marine biology, and from 1906 to 1907 he served as acting chief of the scientific staff of the U.S. Bureau of Fisheries steamer Albatross. In 1906 he participated in the Albatross' eight-month Pacific cruise, which resulted in Clark's report of birds he had studied during that period.

Austin H. Clark's association with the United States National Museum began in 1908 with a position as honorary collaborator in the Division of Marine Invertebrates. In 1909 he was appointed assistant curator in the Division of Marine Invertebrates. When the echinoderm collection was removed from the Division of the Marine Invertebrates and made a separate division, Clark was promoted to curator of the Division of Echinoderms, effective April 1, 1920. Clark held the position of curator until his retirement in 1950, at which time he was made an honorary associate in Zoology, a position he retained until his death on October 28, 1954.

Clark did research in the areas of oceanography, marine biology, ornithology, and entomology, but the class Crinoidea constituted his principal research field. Due to a prevailing sense of international cooperation, Clark was able to gain access to specimens collected on various international expeditions, including the Canadian Arctic Expedition and the Siboga Expedition. The collections of the United States National Museum were also sent abroad for study. Notable recipients of these collections were Theodor Mortensen, Rene Koehler, Ludwig Doderlein, and Torsten Gislen.

Clark wrote 630 books and articles in English, German, French, Spanish, Russian, and Hebrew. Although most of these were published in the United States, the places of publication included twenty different countries. Among his books were Animals of Land and Sea (1925), Nature Narratives (vol. 1, 1929; vol. 2, 1931), The New Evolution (1930), and Animals Alive (1948). Clark and his second wife, Leila Gay Forbes (m. 1933), co-authored eight papers on the butterflies of Virginia.

Scientific journalism was an important field for Clark. He maintained close contact with various scientific editors and was one of the first to realize the application of radio and televison to the dissemination of scientific news and ideas. Clark was instrumental in the development of the weekly radio talks aired by the Smithsonian from 1923 to 1926 in cooperation with the Carnegie Institution of Washington, the Navy Department, the Biological Survey, the U.S. Coast and Geodetic Survey, the Bureau of Fisheries, and other government agencies. In 1925 Clark and the Smithsonian were instrumental in establishing a series of radio broadcasts in the Boston area through the cooperation of Thornton W. Burgess, Harlow Shapley, and others. Clark was appointed director of press service for the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) in 1928. He also served as press relations officer for the Eighth Pan-American Scientific Congress (1940) and the AAAS Centennial Celebration (1948).

Clark also held offices in other scientific organizations, notably the National Research Council's American Geophysical Union, where he served as secretary of the Section of Oceanography (1926-1928), chairman of the Section of Oceanography (1928-1933), and vice-chairman of the Union (1933). He was also president of the Washington Academy of Sciences, president of the Entomological Society of Washington, a member of the Executive Committee of the Board of Trustees of the National Parks Association, a member of the Executive Committee and Long Range Planning Committee of the Southern Association of Science and Industry, and a member of the Long Range Planning Committee of the Virginia Academy of Sciences.

Descriptive Entry

The main body of the collection consists of incoming and outgoing personal correspondence. However, since Clark was curator and sole employee of the Division of Echinoderms from 1920 to 1950, his personal papers contain some official correspondence generated by the Division of Echinoderms during that period. Also included are papers that document Clark's participation in organizations outside the Smithsonian; records relating to the administration of the Division of Echinoderms; descriptive notes on specimen collections; manuscripts and typescripts; bibliographic references; Addison Emery Verrill material maintained by Clark; and charts and diagrams depicting the comparative Bathymetric distribution of crinoids in the Atlantic and Indo-Pacific Oceans.

ADDISON EMERY VERRILL MATERIAL, CA. 1883-1915. UNARRANGED.

Verrill (1839-1926) was a noted zoologist and geologist who investigated Atlantic and Pacific coast invertebrata and the marine fauna of the Caribbean. Verrill held several positions during the time period to which these papers relate: professor of zoology, Museum of Comparative Zoology (MCZ) (1864-1907); curator of Zoological Museum, MCZ (1865-1910); associate editor, American Journal of Science (1869-1920); instructor of geology, Sheffield Scientific School (1870-1894); and assistant in charge of scientific explorations by the United States Fish Commission (1871-1887). How this material came into Clark's possession is undetermined.
