About F. Lewis Clark

F. LEWIS CLARK, a business man of Spokane, was born in Bangor, Maine, June 21, 1861, only child of Jonathan G. and Harriet (Brown) Clark, also natives of Maine. His mother died in 1865. His father is still living. He was educated at Harvard University, graduating at that institution with the class of 1883. In April of the following year he came to Washington, and in December of the same year he bought a mill site of Frederick Post. In this connection he took the initiative step toward fostering that important branch of industry, and the following year he constructed the C. & O. mill and elevator, the largest flouring mill in the Pacific Northwest. In that business he was associated with F.E. Curtis, and the firm of Clark & Curtis then turned their attention to grain warehouses and established a thorough system of elevators on branch railroads centering in Spokane. The result of their steps cannot be overestimated. In 1890, Clark & Curtis sold out to the Washington Water Power Company, since which time Mr. Clark has been more or less actively engaged in business of various kinds at Spokane. In July, 1892, Mr. Clark was united in marriage to Miss Wyard, of Washington, District of Columbia. Their magnificent home with its picturesque grounds, situated at the foot of the precipice in Spokane, is appropriately named "Undercliff."
