Title Ezra Clark, page x
Description X EZRA THOMPSON CLARK Just across the street from each other lived his two fami- lies, one of eleven children, and one of ten. The last pages of this biography are as tender and heart-warming as one _ may find in any family life. The author of this biography was the oldest child of the second family. From the teachings of her church and the great love she had for her father, she accepted without question the practice of "plural marriage," and herself became a second wife. Ezra T. Clark was born in 1832 and died in 1901, at the age of seventy-seven. A favorite daughter, the author of this biography, Annie Clark Tanner, was born in 1864, and died in 1941, at the age of seventy-seven. She wrote this biography of her father in 1931, and her own auto- biography in 1940. The ideal of both this story and her own autobiography was complete objectivity. She wanted deeply to "tell it like it was," without concern for approval or disapproval. Nevertheless, in her human way she was pleased when- ever approval came. The following letter from Heber J. Grant, written when he was President of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, she included in her own autobiography. With her characteristic sensitivity and un- certainty, she introduces President Grant's letter with these words : 66 The analysis of my father's life and his religious influ- ences may have been a bit shocking to some of my brothers and sisters. However, my brother, Edward, sent a copy to President Heber J. Grant, and received the following letter. This letter gave, as my brother, Joseph, smilingly observed, `the stamp of approval' for the family."
