MARK W. CLARK
Small black and white "secret" and censored photograph of Mark W. Clark talking to Willis Dale Crittenberger near the Leaning Tower of Pisa.
Photograph signed: "Mark W. Clark". B/w, 4x5. Rubber stamped on verso that this photograph was "secret" and censored per a January 1, 1944 memorandum. Also noted on verso, in pencil (unknown hand): "Left to Right/W D Crittenberger CG IV Corps/which captured PISA/Mark W. Clark, CG 5th/Army/3 Sept 44". Pictured are Generals Willis Dale Crittenberger and Mark Wayne Clark and the Leaning Tower of Pisa. Mark W. 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. Lightly creased, minor surface striation (not evident head on) touches the "M" in Mark. Light stains at blank right margin. No show through from verso. Overall, fine condition.
