Interview with Vivian Clark re: William S. Clark, MD by Norma M.T. Braun, MD

Mrs. Vivian Clark speaks about her husband, Dr. William Clark, who completed his internship and residency at St. Luke’s Hospital (now Mount Sinai Morningside) and returned there as Chief of Medicine between 1975 and 1979. She discusses his childhood in Dayton, Ohio, and his move into medicine, his work with the National Foundation March of Dimes and The Arthritis Foundation, before returning to clinical practice at St. Luke’s Hospital. In a rather candid interview, Mrs. Clark presents some insider details leading to the merger of St. Luke’s and Roosevelt Hospitals in 1979, as well as reasons behind former Chief of Medicine Dr. Ted Van Itallie’s leaving St. Luke’s in 1975. She also contributes details of her own life and work in various charity organizations, particularly with the Women’s Auxiliary of St. Luke’s and their volunteers, how she met Bill Clark, what his family was comprised of prior to their marriage, and what their relationship dynamic was like.
