Mark W. Clark sends a typed letter about the article he wrote for TV Guide about a Patton movie.
Typed Letter signed: "Mark Clark", 8¼x11. On letterhead of The Citadel Military College, Charleston, South Carolina, 1981 December 3. To Mr. Robert H. Tom, North Buffalo, New York. In full: "Your letter of November 30 has been received and note your question about the Patton movie. I wrote the article for TV Guide when they first aired the picture, and I saw it on TV. There was a good deal of theatrical activities inserted to help promote picture. It does, however, depict a good fighting man and a good leader of troops in combat. The picture being on Patton, they didn't devote much time to many of his contemporaries. My portrayal was a short one and I didn't pay much attention to the actor who represented me. I'm afraid I haven't been very helpful, but that's the best I can do. All my best to you and yours for a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Sincerely," 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, got his fourth star 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. He is buried on the campus of The Citadel next to Mark Clark Hall. Glue at corners. Fold creases through signature. Fine condition.
