Abstract:

The Clarke Family Manuscript Collection perpetuates the memory of Saint Louis University graduate Powhatan Hughes Clarke, who is said to have served his country in France during the First World War as both soldier and Secret Service agent. It also provides genealogical and historical information on the Clarke family, which included Clarke's father Powhatan Henry Clarke, an Indian fighter, Congressional Medal of Honor winner, and friend of celebrated Western artist Frederic Remington. The collection contains family information dating from as far back as 1540, with the bulk of the material dating from about 1900 to 1925. Most of the material consists of correspondence between Powhatan Hughes Clarke's mother, Elizabeth Clemens Clarke, and those acquaintances of her son who she hoped would be able to corroborate his alleged Secret Service activities, a subject that she feared the government wished to conceal.
