Clark, Frank C.

Clark designed pieces of New York's old Madison Square Garden, while apprenticing in New York. In 1902 he moved to Ashland where he designed two Southern Oregon Normal School buildings. He eventually moved to Medford where he designed over 200 structures. Major architect in the Rogue Valley (1903-1950), his homes are considered a piece of Medford's architectural history. He was Medford's first registered architect. In 1920, Frank Clark received from Governor Olcott an official notification of his appointment as one of five members of the State Board of Architect Examiners to serve for a period of five years. See the Frank Clark Inventory for more information on Clark's career.
