Art collector, lawyer, publisher, businessman, president of the National Baseball Hall of Fame, and heir to the Singer sewing machine fortune, he was the grandson of Edward Clark, the business partner of Isaac Singer.
Clarks collection included work by Rembrandt van Rijn, Frans Hals, El Greco, Henri Matisse, Edgar Degas, Pablo Picasso, Georges Braque, Pierre Auguste Renoir, Paul Cézanne, Jean Baptiste Camille Corot, Vincent van Gogh, and Georges Seurat.
Some of the paintings were given to Yale University, Clark’s alma mater; and the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., but most ended up at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Museum of Modern Art in New York City, on whose boards Clark served.
