Mark W. Clark sends a typed letter of thanks for the Christmas and New Year wishes.
Typed Letter signed: "Mark Clark", 8½x11. On letterhead of The Citadel Military College, Charleston, South Carolina, 1967 December 13. To Mrs. Anne Daniel, Washington, D. C. In full: "Mary and I deeply appreciate your thoughtful Christmas message. We reciprocate and wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas and a happy and prosperous 1968. We appreciate your congratulations on our marriage and Mary and I hasten to thank you for remembering us at this important time in our lives. We are deeply grateful for your friendship and hope our paths will cross before too long. We plan to make our home in Charleston, traveling from time to time to places that mean much to both of us. 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. Fold creases touching signature. Lightly soiled at upper right margin. Otherwise, fine condition.
