Biographical / Historical:
Ed Clark (1926- ) is an abstract expressionist painter who worked in Paris, France and New York. Clark was born in New Orleans, Louisiana in 1926. He studied at the Art Institute of Chicago from 1946 to 1951 and enrolled at the Académie de la Grande Chaumièré in Paris after his arrival there in 1952. After his return to the United States, Clark became a charter member of the Brata Gallery. In 1957 he premiered his shaped canvas at the Brata Gallery Christmas group show. This shaped canvas is generally considered to be the first of its kind. In 1958, he began using a push broom to apply broad strokes of color to canvases on his studio floor.

Ed Clark has received multiple awards and honors including the National Endowment for the Arts' Master Award (1972), the United States Congressional Achievement Award (1994), and the Art Institute of Chicago's Legends and Legacy Award (2013). He has exhibited widely and his work is held in many collections including the Art Institute of Chicago, the California Afro-American Museum, the Centro de Arté Moderno in Guadalajara, Mexico, the Detroit Institute of the Arts, Louisiana State University, the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture, and the New York Public Library Schomburg Center.

"Eimac" tubes ; vacuum tubes ; transmitting tubes ; Klystrons ; industrial magnetrons ; tetrodes-pentodes ; triodes ; diodes-rectifiers-pulse modulators ; founded in 1934 as Eitel-McCullough, Inc. The company’s first products were transmitting vacuum tubes which operated at low voltages, a design feature driven by the needs of the Ham radio community. Under the leadership of the founders, Bill Eitel and Jack McCullough, the company grew and expanded to meet the needs of the U.S. military in World War II, so that by 1945 it was shipping 3,500 tubes per day from two manufacturing plants. Following the end of the war, the company refocused on the commercial broadcast industry and developed new tubes for that application. Regarded as a technical innovator in the design of gridded power tubes, Eimac became the worldwide leader in the broadcast tube industry. http://www.scripophily.net/eimcincca19.html ; During World War II, Eimac and other local tube corporations supplied these tubes in mass quantities to the US military where they powered high frequency radar sets and radio communication transmitters. http://nobelprize.org/physics/articles/lecuyer/
