Wayne Clark, the son of Rex and Kathleen Basore Clark, was born February 17, 1933 in Berryville, Arkansas. He attended public schools in Arkansas and Missouri, graduated from Normandy High School in St. Louis County, Missouri and earned a B. S. degree in Business Administration from the University of Arkansas in 1954. After serving three years as a pilot and Management Analysis Officer in the U. S. Air Force he started his banking career as an examiner with the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation and then advanced in several Arkansas banks ending his career as .Chief Executive Officer of the First National Bank of Berryville where he still serves as Chairman of the Board. He served as president of numerous civic and professional organizations, including the Arkansas Bankers' Association. Wayne is married to Janet Clark, great granddaughter of Isaac A. Clarke. They have two daughters. After Janet's mother and father died, the papers of Isaac Clarke were entrusted to Janet. Wayne and Janet live across the street from the former academy in Berryville, Arkansas. As a history buff, Wayne took an active interest in preserving the documentation of a complex era in Arkansas history. He felt Professor Clarke's story needed to be told, not just to his descendents, but to those who might want to know how life unfolded in the pre and post civil war.
