University, Book 3, page 178. ~ ~ ~ ~ In May 1937, in a single acquisition, Brigham Young University took possession of 85 paintings and drawings by Maynard Dixon. Dr. Herald R. Clark, who was at the time dean of the College of Commerce, arranged the purchase with family funds. Given the national recognition that Dixon has received over the intervening 60-plus years, one can't help but admire the adventurous and sensitive nature of this one act. Picture it: a man whose discipline is economics, working in a university whose primary objective at the time was the education of teachers, not only being attracted to the ground-breaking work of a contemporary artist but also negotiating a major acquisition for the university - all within the context of the Great Depression. His action and its effect are most remarkable. Until the time of the transaction, there had been no institutional commitment to acquiring art at Brigham Young University. A few works of art had been given to BY, but no one had ever purchased a group of works for the university, let alone on the scale of this purchase, which focused upon one significant artist. Clearly, Dr. Clark's foresight was inspired. ~ ~ ~ ~ People are very surprised to learn that Brigham Young University owns the largest Dixon collection in the United States and it’s quite a wonderful story as to how that came to happen. There was an individual at BYU in the 1930s, by the name of Herald R. Clark, who was dean of the business school, who may have seen some of Dixon’s paintings on exhibit in Utah. We really don’t know, but what we do know is that he saw, in the St. Louis dispatch, reproductions of the Forgotten Man series and the Maritime Strike series. Herald R. Clark was an economist first and foremost. He was very, very touched by the pathos in these works and took it upon himself to make a personal and unofficial visit to Dixon in San Francisco. Finally tracks him down and the two meet, go to a bar together, Herald R. Clark has milk. I don’t know what Dixon had. And they talk about a potential acquisition of the university of some of his art. I do know also that Herald R. Clark had lost money in the crash, many people had, so again he brought a very personal view…you know what, let’s not put that in the film because the family might not like that. They were a little, they didn’t want to tell me too much about that, and the fact that it was actually somebody in the Clark family that bought the paintings because BYU didn’t have money to buy art in the ‘30s. Herald R. Clark was also very interested in bringing culture to BYU. He had a lyceum series that ran for decades and he brought people like Helen Keller, Pearl S. Buck, Robert Frost, Rachmaninov to this campus, kind of a remote campus and so it’s not unusual that he would start thinking let’s bring some art here, but what art and why Maynard Dixon? It’s because he was so moved by that particular series of the Forgotten Man. So he travels to San Francisco and in a very short amount of time he contracts with him to buy about 85 paintings and drawings that really cover a good bit of Maynard’s career, for the sum of $3,700. I always wondered was it because it was 1937 that it was $3,700. He establishes a lifelong correspondence with Maynard Dixon. They’re very fond of each other. Their letters back and forth until Maynard’s death really, are just full of affection and Herald R. Clark tried to get Maynard Dixon to BYU to talk to the classes in front of his art and it, unfortunately, never happened. Dixon kept trying to come and his failing health prevented that from ever occurring. ~ ~ ~ ~ Herald Ray Clark was born on October 18, 1890 in Farmington, Utah. His parents were Amasa Lyman Clark and Alice Charlotte Steed Clark. Herald was a veteran of World War I. Herald married Mable Hone on June 9, 1915 in Salt Lake City, Utah. Herald R. Clark died on May 24, 1966 in Provo, Utah. His interment, Provo City Cemetery, Utah.

Source: The Evening Herald, Provo, Utah, May 28, 1930. ~ ~ ~ ~ Student Body President. ~ ~ ~ ~ OBITUARY: James Kyle Clark, Sr., M.D., died of congestive heart failure at his home, October 7, 1996. He was 85. Born in Monroe, Utah on July 3, 1911, to Dr. James Cecil and Laura Clark, he was the third of nine children. In 1919 the family moved to Provo. J. Kyle Clark graduated from B.Y. High School in 1930, where he was Student Body President. After that, it was two years at BYU, then an LDS mission in Germany. J. Kyle graduated from BYU in 1937 and entered medical school in Louisiana State University. He graduated in 1941 with an M.D. degree. During 1941-42 he interned at Holy Cross Hospital in Salt Lake City, Utah. He wrote in his personal history, "This is where I met Lois, I picked her out early, one month after arriving, but she didn't know it." Continuing on, he wrote, "On 1 July 1942, I was commissioned 1st Lieutenant in the U.S. Army Medical Corps and told to be at Carlisle Barracks, Pennsylvania, Medical Training School as soon as I could get there - -'yes Sir!' This is where Lois and I were married." Later, on 7 April 1943, the marriage was solemnized in the Manti Temple. In late summer 1942 he was a Battalion Surgeon with the 4th Armored Division. After maneuvers in New York, Tennessee, California and Texas, he shipped out in a convoy to England. He served in the Battle of the Bulge. He received the Bronze Star for gallantry in action. After the war, J. Kyle received advanced obstetrical training at Margaret Hague Maternity Hospital in New Jersey, and began his private general practice in the fall of 1945 in Provo. At this time, as a result of the war, there were no cars available, so he initially made housecalls on foot or in borrowed cars. He was genuinely fond of his patients, and treated them with kindness and respect. In turn, he was beloved because he was accessible, caring and meticulous. After closing his office in 1976, he worked at Timpanogos Mental Health Center. He was nonjudgemental and empathetic, and helped many people who suffered from alcoholism, substance abuse and mental problems. He appreciated the friendships that he made there, staff and patients alike. He was Utah County Physician for many years and was a member of the Utah County and Utah State Medical Societies. He was a faithful member of the LDS Church, serving as Sunday School Superintendent, High Priest Group Leader, and High Councilman. J. Kyle will be greatly missed by his wife, of 54 years, Lois Kathryn Anderson Clark and their devoted children, James Kyle, Jr. and wife, Melissa; Kathryn C. Spencer and husband, Darrell; John A. Clark and Renee Williams; Brent A. Clark, Carol Ann C. Hayes and husband, John K. Jr.; and Kristine C. Chapman and husband, Bradley. He also leaves behind 22 wonderful grandchildren, nine precious great-grandchildren, and faithful little birding dog, Muffy. Also surviving are his brothers and sisters, Riley G. Clark, Grant Z. Clark, Edith C. Oveson, Margaret C. Hutchings, Barbara C. Cooper. Da Costa Clark, Albert D. Clark, Cecil C. Dixon, and his parents, preceded him in death. Funeral services were held Thursday, October 10, 1996 in Provo, Utah. Interment, Provo City Cemetery. [Published in the Deseret News, Tuesday, October 8, 1996.]

BYH Class of 1957. Joan Cecile Clark. Childrens Theater, Pep Club, Thespians, Chorus, 1st Place Poetry Contest, I Speak for Democracy, Model U.N., Exchange Assembly, Soph Ball Committee, Senior Hop Committee. Married David Koralewski. ~ ~ ~ ~ HER OBITUARY: Joan Cecile Clark Koralewski -- BELOVED WIFE, MOTHER, DANCER, TEACHER, FRIEND. Last Sunday afternoon, after a long struggle with debilitating cancer, Joan Cecile Clark Koralewski passed on to another, higher, plane of existence. She is the daughter of Riley G. Clark, noted pediatrician and obstetrician, now 94, and Merle L. Anderson, deceased. She is survived by her husband, David Koralewski, and six children: Laurie Payne, Janae Thomas, Kristen Day, Daina Bitters, Tia Hall, and Brian Koralewski. At present, five wonderful grandchildren have been born. They and future progeny have yet to realize how special "Gram-ma" was. She will be sorely missed by all who knew her. Joan was 63 years old, and was of small stature, according to the scales and rulers by which bodies are usually measured. Using any other criteria, there was nothing "little" about her. She leaves behind a still widening influence, through children, neighbors, students, and family members whom she has changed for the better. Because it was impossible to know Joan without readjusting your definitions of things you thought you knew, those insights are being passed and will continue to enlighten other families and neighborhoods, for generations to come. Lighter than most people, her spirit had tugged at the earthly body and danced at the end of gravity's string. Her attitudes and philosophy were shaped, as a child, when she became one of the original Virginia Tanner dancers, performing what came to be known as "creative dance." She performed as a member of the Children's Dance Theater in Salt Lake City, Utah in 1949. She went on to study ballet and modern dance from many great teachers such as Willam Christensen, founder of Ballet West, who taught her, first, in a basement of an old home in Murray, then in an Army building on the U. of U. campus, and finally in a wing of Kingsbury Hall. Joan began teaching her own students at age 11, using the Veteran's Memorial Building adjacent to her family home in Provo, Utah. Eventually, she earned a Master's Degree in Dance from Brigham Young University, where she helped to create the Ballet program in the Physical Education Department. She taught through Special Courses and Conferences even before she had her B.A. Then she was asked to start the BYU Ballet classes. She was the first ballet teacher there, and started a ballet club, called the Corps de Ballet. She also taught modern dance at BYU, and was a member of Orchesis and International Folk Dancers. She had already completed a Master's Degree in Psychology, which she believed gave her greater understanding as a teacher. However, because she felt that motherhood was her greatest teaching opportunity, she left a professional career to lavish nearly all her love and attention on raising her own six children. She did, however, continue to teach in her own home, introducing hundreds of young souls to an awareness of their own powers of creativity and imagination. Many of these went on to further study with other teachers; most, it must be admitted, did not. But each student carried away an appreciation of art, music, life, and of Joan, herself, that would serve as a foundation and ballast for their own lives. Joan also taught fundamental gospel principles to each of her students: Faith and Repentance are necessary steps in learning any craft. Listening to the "inner voice" is a crucial guidance mechanism in art. Sharing and Giving and Waiting Your Turn and Being Ready To Do Your Part, and Trying Again and Trying Again and Not Quitting Before You Can Do It -- these were all principles Joan taught by precept and by example, not just to little kids, but to their parents, as well, and to her neighbors, and to her family. Joan has taught through Community School and Recreation programs in Provo and Orem. She has helped put on plays in the church, school, and community. She choreographed the first Freedom Festival pageant in Provo. She helped launch the SCERA theatrical programs. Her children have been, likewise, accomplished and active in community service and academic pursuits. She has published, on a small scale, two books: "Creative Movement For Children" and "Come Dance". During the time of her illness, she was preparing a book of poems, with accompanying musical interpretation, called simply, "Hi!" She had hoped to create a fantasy series about creatures called "Bagingas" and "Dynkynamos." Joan was active in the Relief Society of the Cascade 1st Ward in Orem, where she taught Gospel Living lessons, and was beloved as a visiting teacher in members' homes. She would like to share her testimony of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ as it has been revealed to modern-day prophets in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. "To the Saints in this ward I wish to express my profound gratitude. You have given to me great and marvelous gifts: your prayers, spiritual messages, love, laughter, concern by phone calls and visits, physical nourishment, flowers, gifts, and financial reinforcement for my treatments and surgery. Bishop Pyne and his wife, Kathy, and now, Bishop Martin and his dear wife, Carol, are nurturing angels in the flesh, truly spiritual giants. The best way I can return my love to you, at least right now, is through my testimony: I love the Lord and have ultimate faith in His miracles, which we see in everything from His vast creations to His restoring people to mental, emotional, and physical health, through their faith. We serve Him when we use our talents, whatever they are, serving our fellow man; spreading His gospel to nonbelievers; researching our ancestors; performing and working in the Temple; and keeping His commandments with love and joy in our hearts. I love the infusion of light and warmth that comes to me when I keep those commandments. I am grateful for the chance to repent and be able to erase the sins from my life. Yes, I give thanks to Christ for His ultimate sacrifice for me and for you, which makes it possible, through our repentance and the Grace of God, to return to and dwell with Him. To try to comprehend Christ's suffering for me is truly beyond what I am capable of comprehending; and I am humbled to my greatest depths as I try. I am grateful for every Church calling to which I have been called, because serving the Lord in any capacity is a joy. God's restoration of the Gospel to the earth, through a true Prophet Joseph Smith, is the Lord's way of giving to us the ultimate truths as a compass for our lives. Please, may we all continue to love and give and be daily humbled by His Greatness and yet caring love, extended to each of us. With love to you, Joan Koralewski" Joan graduated from Brigham Young High School in Provo in the Class of 1957. Joan did not wish to have a traditional funeral service. A memorial service, following her burial, was held Thursday evening, October 24, 2002, in Orem. Immediately following, a reception in the cultural hall featured a dance area, in which all young children, especially former students, are invited to express their feelings through movement.

J. Reuben & Luacine Clark

Board of Trustees, 1939 to 1961. Joshua Reuben Clark, Jr., was born on September 1, 1871, in the small farming town of Grantsville, a Mormon settlement thirty-five miles southwest of Salt Lake City. Although he did not begin his formal education until he was ten years old, young Reuben had been tutored at home by his mother and had developed a love for learning that lasted his entire life. He had not been able to attend high school, but by 1898, after four years at the University of Utah, Reuben completed all the requirements for both his high school diploma and his bachelor of science degree. He graduated first in his class — in addition to having served as student body president, managing editor of the student newspaper, and secretary to Dr. James E. Talmage, who was president of the university. On September 14, 1898 , J. Reuben Clark married Luacine Annetta Savage in the Salt Lake Temple , with Dr. Talmage officiating at the ceremony. For the next four years he held various positions around the state as a teacher and administrator on both high school and college levels. In 1903, the Clarks, including two small children (two more were to follow), moved to New York City, where Reuben entered law school at Columbia University. His first year's work was of such high quality that he was among the three second-year students elected to the editorial board of the Columbia Law Review. By the end of his second year he was admitted to the New York Bar. He received an LL.B. degree in 1906. Three months after graduating from law school, J. Reuben Clark, Jr., was appointed assistant solicitor of the State Department by Elihu Root, secretary of state under President Theodore Roosevelt. Shortly thereafter he was also named an assistant professor of law at George Washington University, where he taught until 1908. In July 1910, under the administration of President William Howard Taft, Mr. Clark was appointed solicitor of the State Department. As part of his responsibilities he represented the United States in a dispute with Chile. The king of England, serving as arbitrator, ruled in favor of the United States and granted one of the largest international awards up to that time — nearly a million dollars. Also during his solicitorship, Clark published his classic “Memorandum on the Right to Protect Citizens in Foreign Countries by Landing Forces.” Secretary of State Philander C. Knox declared of Mr. Clark: “I am doing him but justice in saying that for natural ability, integrity, loyalty, and industry, I have not in a long professional and public service met his superior and rarely his equal.” J. Reuben Clark, Jr., left the State Department in 1913 to open law offices in Washington, D.C., specializing in municipal and international law. His clients included the Japanese Embassy, Philander C. Knox, the Cuban Legation, the Guatemalan Ministry, J.P. Morgan & Company, and the Equitable Life Assurance Society. During World War I, Mr. Clark received a commission as major in the Judge Advocate General's Officers' Reserve Corps. In this capacity he helped prepare the original Selective Service regulations. He was then assigned on active duty to the U.S. Attorney General's office where he prepared “emergency Legislation and War Powers of the President.” In recognition of his meritorious service, he was awarded the Distinguished Service Medal. By President Coolidge's appointment, Mr. Clark became the Under Secretary of State in 1928. During this service he published the “Clark Memorandum on the Monroe Doctrine,” praised by critics as a “monument of erudition” and a “masterly treatise.” The BYU Law Society's semiannual publication takes its name from this famous work. On October 3, 1939 , J. Reuben Clark, Jr., was named U.S. Ambassador to Mexico. After his resignation two and a half years later, Mr. Clark's diplomatic efforts were praised by President Herbert Hoover, who said, “Never have our relations been lifted to such a high point of confidence and cooperation.” In 1933, at age sixty-two, Mr. Clark's lifelong devotion to the Church culminated in a new calling — counselor to President Heber J. Grant of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. As a member of the First Presidency, President Clark was a leading supporter of the Church welfare plan. He also helped put the finances of the Church on a budget plan. He was an inspirational leader and spoke forcefully on topics including freedom, the court, the inspired Constitution, work, integrity, and chastity. An avid student of the life and teachings of the Lord Jesus Christ, he authored many scholarly books on gospel topics. In addition to his Church duties, J. Reuben Clark, Jr., continued to share his professional expertise as a member of corporate boards; government, political, and private committees; and academic journal and educational boards. He also bought and maintained a farm in Grantsville, his boyhood home. After over sixty years of distinguished service to God and his fellowman, President Clark died October 6, 1961, in Salt Lake City. The Clarks were the parents of three daughters, Louise, Luacine, and Marianne, and one son, Joshua Reuben Clark III.
