Historical NoteReturn to Top

Robert Donald Clark, professor of speech, dean, author, public speaker, and university president, was born in Frontier County, Nebraska, in 1910. He received a B. A. in English (with a minor in History) from Pasadena College in 1931 and a M. A. in Speech from the University of Southern California in 1935. During this period he also taught Freshman Composition classes at Pasadena College (1931-1935 and 1937-1938), and was the pastor of the Riverside Nazarene Church for one year (1936). Clark earned his Ph.D. from USC while teaching speech, first at the College of the Pacific, Stockton Junior College (1939-1942), and subsequently at the University of Oregon (1943-1964), where he reinstated extracurricular debate in a program called Symposium. Clark earned his Ph.D. in 1946 with a dissertation entitled “The Platform and Pulpit Career and Rhetorical Theory of Bishop Matthew Simpson.”

Around this same time, Clark began to involve himself in university administration at UO, accepting an appointment as Assistant Dean of the College of Liberal Arts (CLA) in 1947, which he retained until being selected as Dean of CLA in 1955. His administrative duties did not keep him from his writing, and in 1956 he published The Life of Matthew Simpson.

In 1961, Clark was named Dean of Faculties at UO, and three years later, he accepted the Presidency of San Jose State College (1964-1969), a period characterized by student unrest, racial tensions, and a faculty strike in late 1968. In 1969, he returned to the University of Oregon as its eleventh president, a position he held until his retirement in 1975. Clark was a popular president at both institutions, and was known for his dedication to the rights of students and curricular innovation. While at San Jose State, Clark established an interdisciplinary undergraduate education program called the New College, and at University of Oregon he worked on committees dedicated to similar ends. At the conclusion of his educational and administrative career, Clark was chosen as the namesake for the Robert D. Clark Honors College at UO in 1975.

After retirement, Clark continued to take an active role in the Eugene community, participating in local and international citizens’ groups. He also continued to research and write numerous articles and books, including The Odyssey of Thomas Condon: Irish Immigrant, Frontier Missionary, Oregon Geologist, published in 1989. Robert D. Clark died June 28, 2005 at the age of 95.

Content DescriptionReturn to Top

The Robert D. Clark Papers are arranged in seven series. The Personal papers series contains personal correspondence by Clark. The Education series includes Clark’s Matthew Simpson manuscripts and doctoral dissertation. The series of Work-related materials contains reports and correspondence relating to the faculty strike, Olympic boycott, and issues of student unrest during Clark’s five years as President of San Jose State College. The papers from his tenure as President of the University of Oregon include general administrative correspondence and memoranda, many speeches oclon various subjects, and materials relating to Honors programs and the Robert D. Clark Honors College. A few items of note include one note from Ken Kesey, correspondence between Clark and Faye Kesey, many letters between Clark and Tom McCall, Governor of Oregon, and an early (March 30, 1943) letter written and signed by Orson Welles. The collection contains only scant materials relating to student unrest at the University of Oregon, and contains nothing specifically relating to Clark’s year as a pastor (1936).

The Professional papers series covers Clark’s professional work with debate and symposium teams, his correspondence and reports from professional organizations and conferences, plus notes and reference files relating to all of the above. The Writings series includes Clark’s research copies, early writings, drafts, and publications, as well as correspondence and documents relating to his writings for professional publication. A large portion of the series is the Thomas Condon manuscripts and research materials. The sixth series contains correspondence arranged chronologically, in the order they were kept by President Clark. When possible, the correspondent or general subject of the correspondence is noted in the folder title. The final series, Reference Files, contains a large volume of clippings and publications on a wide variety of subjects, including student unrest, speech and oratory, higher education and honors programs, and political issues, the last of which Clark probably used as debate topics. The materials are arranged by broad subject area, then alphabetical by topic.

Series II:  EducationReturn to Top

This series includes Clark’s notes, research, and writings pertaining to his own education. The series includes many of his term papers and related notes, as well as his 1946 dissertation on Matthew Simpson (which is crossreferenced with the Matthew Simpson subseries in Writings). Many of these materials are undated, yet provide sufficient clues to connect them with a specific degree-related subseries. The undated papers and notes that are difficult to connect to any specified course, instructor, or institution are collected in the General Educational Notes and Papers subseries. The series is organized alphabetically by topic and covers a wide range of academic subject areas such as history, philosophy, drama, oratory, psychology, and literature.

Series III:  Work-RelatedReturn to Top

This series is organized chronologically, by institution, starting with Pasadena College, and continuing through the University of Oregon. It also includes reports and materials relating to tenure, retirement, and Clark’s participation on academic and administrative committees. The folders in each work-related subseries are organized alphabetically by subject, in accordance with Clark’s original organizational methodology. This series includes speeches, reports, official statements, and memoranda that directly and clearly pertain to Clark’s work-related duties; speeches and articles that defy such categorization are found in the Writings series. Also note that while there are papers from the Southern California District of the Church of the Nazarene in this collection (see Personal Papers), none derive from the year Clark spent as Pastor, 1936.

Series IV:  ProfessionalReturn to Top

This series covers Clark’s professional work with debate and symposium teams, his correspondence and reports from professional organizations and conferences, plus notes and reference files relating to all of the above. Note that the Western Association of Teachers of Speech (WATS), founded in 1929, changed its name to the Western Speech Association (WSA) in April 1946; hence, these comprise a single subseries. Further note that the College Entrance Exam Board Reference Files subseries, which includes the copious number of reference files Clark collected on the subject of Advanced Placement, is organized alphabetically by subject, rather than chronologically as are the rest of the subseries in this series.

Series V:  WritingsReturn to Top

This series covers Clark’s research copies, early writings, drafts, and publications, as well as correspondence and documents relating to his writings for professional publication. The Thomas Condon subseries, which is extensive, is arranged alphabetically by subject rather than chronologically, in keeping with the original order. In the Notes subseries, which is also arranged alphabetically by subject rather than chronologically, the topics cover oral interpretation, speech, English language usage, sermons, and historical data. This series does not contain Clark’s writings dating from his education, including his doctoral dissertation on Matthew Simpson.
