Scope and Contents note:
Series 4 comprises a large collection of disparate materials accumulated by Clark on persons important in the technological development of radio. Included in it are primary materials relating to some of the most important inventors and innovators in radio and wireless communication, including Guglielmo Marconi, Lee DeForest, Nicola Tesla, Reginald A. Fessenden, Roy A. Weagant and John Stone Stone. Additionally, Clark collected documentation on amateurs, radio corporation executives, navy radio aids Clark knew, operators, engineers and hundreds of others active in radio in the first half of the twentieth century. The documents include: letters, and in some cases, full sets of correspondence between individuals; biographical and autobiographical writings (such as resumes) solicited by Clark for inclusion in his "radio library"; writings by Clark and others on various topics in radio history; litigation and patent documents; internal corporate memoranda; drawings, blueprints and designs; and most voluminous, printed material in various forms, including clippings, articles, award programs, press releases and scrapbook entries. Clark's scrapbook entries range from one-line facts about individuals typed or written directly onto a page, citations for other sources of information about individuals, business cards, photographs, and newspaper and magazine clippings ranging in length from one or two lines to several pages.

This series is arranged in alphabetical order by name of individual. The box and folder inventory of this finding aid indicates what types of documents are included on each person. A separate file has been created for individuals when primary material is included. When only secondary material exists, such as clippings, the material has been filed in a general file under the appropriate letter of the alphabet. The finding aid also lists these names and types of documents included. Photocopies of scrapbook items have been filed in cases where information about more than one individual was found on a single page. Correspondence and other documents which pertain to more than one person have been cross referenced in the index to correspondents which follows this finding aid.
