Biographical Information

Named after a popular American evangelist of the early twentieth century, Billy Sunday Clark was born on April 12, 1922, in Guntersville, Alabama. Clark attended Officer Candidate School in Fort Sill, Oklahoma in 1943, before being sent to what is now Fort Hood, Texas, the following year. On March 25, 1944, he married Juanita Williams and the couple went on to have three children.

During Clark's service abroad, he was stationed in India and Japan in 1945 to 1947. Following this service, the Clark family moved to Arkansas. In 1950, Clark graduated from the University of Arkansas Law School in Fayetteville and he practiced law for a short time before his return to military service during the Korean War.

After his military service, Clark resumed his law career in Little Rock at the Mehaffy, Smith & Williams law firm (the firm changed its name to the Friday, Eldredge, & Clark in 1974). Clark was known for his expertise in labor law and was a member of both the Arkansas Bar Association and the American Bar Association. Billy S. Clark died in Little Rock, Arkansas, in March 2004.
