Description
The Frank C. Clarke Field Notes collection consists of field notes, specimen records, investigations, and some experiments completed in California between 1912-1913.
Background
Frank C. Clarke was born in 1887 on the Clarke family ranch near Laytonville, Mendocino County, California. He graduated cum laude from UC Berkeley in 1911 and earned his Master's degree in 1912 with a major in Entomology and Parasitology before returning to the family ranch. For a short time Clarke accepted employment with the California Fish and Game Commission establishing the skeletal differences between male and female deer. This information was later used to convict hunters who attempted to pass off killed does as bucks.
