Monterey Peninsula Herald, CA March 15, 1951
"Daddy Clark" Taken by Death in PG
The death of Carroll Buffum Clark, known affectionately as "Daddy Clark" to old time Pacific Grove residents and visitors, marks the passing of a colorful Peninsula figure. Mr. Clark died this morning in a local rest home after a long illness. He was born Aug. 12, 1868, in Rock Island, Ill., and came in early days to Pacific Grove with his wife, the late Mrs. Josephine "Chickie" Clark. He opened the first Pacific Grove theater, known as D's Theater. Then for over 20 years prior to the taking over of Pacific Grove beach by the city in 1932, Mr. Clark operated a little two-room photographic studio near the old Japanese tea garden, just beyond the dance hall, and no holiday spent on the snds was complete without one of "Daddy Clark's" carefully posed portraits. When the studio, along with other old beach structures, was torn down in 1932, Mr. Clark opened a little rental library on Forest avenue, which he continued to operate for many years, in spite of approaching blindness. Always friendly and jovial, he was loved by all who knew him. Mrs. Clark's death occurred Sept. 19, 1940, and no close relatives survive him. Funeral services are pending at the Paul Mortuary.
