Biography | show moreshow less
James Beauchamp "Champ" Clark (1850-1921) was a Democratic Member of Congress from Missouri (1893-1895, 1897-1921). He was Speaker of the House from 1911 to 1919. Clark was the front runner for the Democratic Presidential nomination in 1912, and led in delegates on the first ballot, but couldn't obtain the two-thirds then necessary for nomination and ultimately lost to Woodrow Wilson. Although he played a key role in steering early Wilson legislation through the House, he opposed the Federal Reserve Act (despite the placement of two Federal Reserve Banks in Missouri) and broke with Wilson entirely on the issue of entry into World War I. He was defeated in the Republican landslide of 1920.
