Title Ezra Clark, page 056
Description was an extremely careful man in the administration of his private affairs he was, nevertheless, openhearted and gen- erous in every public undertaking. His interest and con- tributions covered a wide field. When subscriptions were asked for in the town, his name not only led the list but the amount far exceeded the other subscribers. He was more eminently a man of deeds than of words. He was not a public speaker, and his public addresses were always very brief. He was glad to render assistance to the authorities of the Latter-day Saint Church. Often he furnished the teams for their trips to the northern part of the state and Idaho. He had a keen delight in the growth of the Church and the fine companionship it afforded him. When the conference of the Church was held in St. George in April 1877, at the time the St. George Temple was dedicated, he was invited to join President Young's party on the seven hundred mile trip. He was also one of the president's party when the site for the Logan Temple was dedicated. When this temple was completed he participated in the dedicatory ceremo- nies. In all temple construction he was a generous sub- scriber. For example, in 1892 he met with a group of men in Salt Lake City to consider the best ways and means for the completion of the Salt Lake Temple. The plan was to complete the temple by the spring of 1893, which would require $20,000. At this meeting $1,000 was the amount subscribed by Ezra Clark. Many years before the railroad was extended to the temple grounds, in fact since the cornerstone was laid at the April conference in 1853, Ezra Clark donated to the temple and maintained a two-ox team and wagon which hauled granite blocks from Little Cottonwood Canyon.
