Title Ezra Clark, page 065
Description EZRA THOMPSON CLARK 65 State of Utah was referred to, he replied, "Yes, we are making history." The following is a quotation from the Improvement Era, January, 1902: "The late Ezra T. Clark, whose testimony to his family and to the world is herewith presented, was a man of splendid character. He was one among those strong per- sonalities in the ranks of the pioneers of Utah who seemed to be especially endowed with strength and faith to found commonwealths and redeem deserts. Faithful to his con- victions, true to his religion, honest and upright, progres- sive and intelligent, his words possess great significance and weight. . . . He was greatly interested in education, and among the last acts of his life was the donation of one thousand dollars to the Latter-day Saints' University, Salt Lake City, for the founding of The Clark Library of Natural Science. . . ." He was an unusually sensitive man. His awareness of the unseen spiritual forces was illustrated when he referred to a widow lady who wanted to borrow some money. "She was a good woman," he observed, "and I didn't want her prayers to ascend against me." He had an appreciative nature. A favorite pastime of his later years was to drive a one-horse buggy or ride a pony to the fields. He is to be pardoned if he felt a degree of . exaltation as he witnessed the transformation that had been wrought by his own efforts. For his success was due to his insight into the future and a preparation for it. He brought all kinds of garden seed and even a few chickens when he came into the valley. Perhaps he remembered with pride the first five hundred bushels of wheat that were grown on
