MARK W. CLARK
Mark W. Clark sends a typed letter of thanks for the book Now It Can Be Told but time does not permit him right know to read it cover to cover.
Typed Letter signed: "Mark W. Clark", 7x10½. On letterhead of Headquarters, Far East Command, APO 500.No place, 1952 December 19. To Dagobert D. Runes, Ph. D., Director of Philosophy Library, New York, New York. In full: "It was indeed thoughtful of you to send me the copy of NOW IT CAN BE TOLD, and I assure you that your thoughtfulness is greatly appreciated. Because of the pressure of official duties, I have as yet found time to read only parts of the book but I wish to assure you that I have found those parts not only interesting but absorbing. I look forward to reading the book from cover to cover just as soon as time permits. I know that it will recall many personal experiences in connection with the incidents you relate - incidents other than the trip across the Mediterranean in the British submarine. The accuracy and suspense with which the latter is described recall it most vividly to my mind. Again expressing my appreciation of your kindness in sending me the book and the New Year, I am 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 through "M" of Mark. Fine condition.
