MARK W. CLARK
Black and white publicity photograph of Mark W. Clark in a restaurant.
Photograph inscribed and signed: "To: Larry & Walter Kirsch./Thanks for a grand/evening./Mark W. Clark./Mrs. Mark W. Clark/Oct. 24, 1946." as U.S. High Commissioner in occupied Austria. B/w, 7x5. Clark has signed for both himself and his wife, Maurine, who would publish her memoirs, Captain's Bride, General's Lady, ten years later. Exactly five months earlier, Clark, who was then Commander of U.S. occupation forces in Vienna, Austria, had appeared on the cover of "Time" magazine. Mark Wayne Clark (1896-1984), who assumed command of the Fifth Army in North Africa in 1943 and commanded the Fifth Army in the invasion of Italy in 1944, became a Four-Star General in March 1945. He accepted the surrender of German forces in Italy and Austria and, from 1945 to 1947, was the U.S. High Commissioner in occupied Austria. In 1953, as Commander in Chief of the United Nations Command, he signed the military armistice between the U.N. Command and the North Korean Army and Chinese People's Volunteers in Korea. That year, he also began his 12 years of service as President of The Citadel. Clark is buried on the campus of The Citadel next to Mark Clark Hall. Surface creased. Minor stains (most not evident head on), one touches one word of writing. Scuffed at upper left margin. Overall, fine condition.
