Dr. Edward Clark, who holds a Ph.D. in Civil Engineering, and enjoys flying, motorcycles, golf, and playing the banjo, has completed his new book, "FROM A ONE-ROOM SCHOOL TO HARVARD": a thought-provoking memoir of following one's dreams and finding success through hard work and determination.
"Over the years, Patricia and I enjoyed walking through bookstores, both of us leaving with at least one book," writes Clark. "Sometimes, one of us would choose a biography or autobiography; and we both agreed we would someday write a book, maybe an autobiography for our grandchildren. We never got around to writing more than a short story here and there until a few months ago when I was diagnosed with cancer, and I expected the end was near. I decided to write an autobiography, and Patricia, as always, agreed to help me even though she thought I should be concentrating on recuperating.
"Once I began writing the book, I called it a timeline. I realized that I did not know a lot about my large group of ancestors even though I always enjoyed the ones I met or read about. I immediately made a few phone calls and reread some of the few printed materials I gathered over the years. I soon realized that the only practical thing I could do was to write about the ones I knew and apologize that a portion of my book was incomplete."
