The late Clark used the power of the pen to share propane’s good word, serving as an energy industry voice for over 60 years. As publisher of Butane-Propane News (BPN), Clark kept industry members informed with his writing by taking a marketer-simple approach to complex issues. His advice and counsel were widely sought by propane industry leaders, and he often provided ideas and strategies for facing industry challenges and capitalizing on opportunities. He rallied the industry to be proactive in processes that allowed it to control its destiny. Clark also played a key role in advocating for congressional legislation that led to the formation of the Propane Education & Research Council (PERC). While Milford Therrell and Glenn Miller – also LP Gas Hall of Famers – were traveling the country convincing the industry to support the legislation, Clark’s columns were promoting the effort through logical arguments, position papers and intelligent perspectives. Clark also defended the industry during President Nixon’s price controls of the 1970s. Schooled in journalism at the University of Southern California, Clark worked as an editor following his duty in World War II – first at Gas Magazine and later BPN before assuming ownership of BPN in 1969. He became a passionate, articulate and devoted advocate for the propane industry. Clark died in 2005 at the age of 88.
