MARK CLARK VAN ARK
I've been reading Jon Mikolashek's biography of General Mark Clark. I can't hear Mark Clark's name without thinking of the actress Joan Van Ark's less famous brother MARK CLARK VAN ARK! I heard Joan interviewed many years ago and she mentioned that her brother was named for Mark Clark; her father had served under General Clark in
World War II.
I have written other articles about odd names (click here). My all-time favorite is DWARD FARQUAHAR who was Dodie Goodman's dance teacher in Columbus, Ohio. My friend Patty's favorite is: FERN TEESEETLE ARNOLD who was the aunt of Patty's friend Linda.
