Clark Lecture

Printer-friendly version

The Clark Lecture series was founded in 1974, as a living memorial to Reverend Thaddeus Clark. "Tad" Clark served as Lead Minister of First Unitarian Church of St. Louis from 1945 until he retired in 1969. He also taught philosophy and religion at Washington Unversity, he served as president of the St. Louis and Missouri Mental Health Associations and was a member of the board of directors of the St. Louis Urban league. Reverend Clark was a man of great intellectual and academic qualities, as well as a kind pastor and friend to the people of First Unitarian, St. Louis.

This lecture series, bringing leaders of opinion and thought to the Saint Louis Community, is funded by a memorial fund, which you can support by making a donation to the First Unitarian Church, with a notation designating it to the Clark Lecture. However, your most important form of support is to attend the lecture each year and to listen deeply.
