    Biography / Administrative History

    Gordon "Grode" Clark attended the University of the Pacific on-and-off in between 1967 and 1973. In 1968, he started Stuart Little Band, which was based in Stockton, played throughout northern California, and opened for many famous acts of the time such as Santana and Jefferson Airplane. The band members were Phil McKay, Mike McQueery, Steve (S.L.) Solari, and Clark.

    Scope and Content of Collection

    The collection consists of a few documents and concert posters that shed some light on Clark, his music, and his activities as a student at Callison College at the University of the Pacific. Callison emphasized non-Western philosophies and arts. Clark's student evaluations reveal not only his progress as a student, but also the types of programs (yoga, Zen, and Buddhist thought) that were part of the Callison College curriculum.
    The collection also includes a selective representation of music created and produced by Clark and the Stuart Little Band. The audiotapes include songs and performances of Stuart Little Band and solo work by Clark. The music reflects the psychedelic sound that was popular in rock music in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Stuart Little Band and Clark somewhat demonstrate the life of a local band during a significant time in rock music.
