Jackson Park neighbors gathered with city officials and members of the local parlor of the Native Sons of the Golden West on Saturday, Oct. 22, to dedicate the Clark Memorial Bench. The Native Sons were on hand to install a historical plaque that recalled Isabelle Clark’s 1920 expression of love for her late husband, George B Clark. The plaque’s inscription also called to mind Doors’ singer Jim Morrison’s role in the saga. (Submitted on February 25, 2017, by James King of San Miguel, California.)
