August Barnwell Clark Papers Addendum
Scope and Content Note
The material relating to Clark's bid for himself or his friends to be appointed U. S. Marshall dates from 1932 to 1940. It comprises primarily copies of letters of reference in Clark's behalf, but also includes two petitions and an incomplete index created by Clark of the reference letters. The general correspondence spans 1931-1940. It is primarily business correspondence related to Clark's banking interests and involvement with the Texarkana Chamber of Commerce. Some political matters involving Senators Hattie W. Caraway and Joe T. Robinson and Congressman Ben Cravens are also discussed, as is the U. S. Bureau of Fisheries.
Among the correspondents are:
Hattie Wyatt Caraway
Joseph Taylor Robinson
Also included are several notes from donor Joe H. Clark (son of August Barnwell Clark), offering contextual information for selected correspondence.
