Cyril C. Clemens was born in 1902 in St. Louis, the only son of James Ross Clemens and Katharine Boland Clemens. Through his father, Cyril Clemens was the third cousin twice removed of Mark Twain (Samuel Langhorne Clemens), and through both parents was related to the most prominent families of St. Louis. Although Cyril Clemens remembered visiting his cousin Mark Twain in 1909, one year before the author's death, he professed to have had no real fascination with Twain's work or even much knowledge about his life. It was while researching Twain in preparation for a talk to a woman's club in the early 1920s that Cyril conceived of the idea to promote the life and literature of his cousin through the creation of an International Mark Twain Society. He founded the society around 1923, and he proceeded with his aim of keeping Twain's name alive by linking it with 20th-century authors and other famous people who professed admiration for Mark Twain. Clemens invited these people to join his International Mark Twain Society. All Cyril would ask in return was an autograph of one of their books or of a photograph. According to Clemens, amassing a collection of these autographs and anecdotes about famous people was a secondary consideration for him. But he never denied that he was making a career of being Mark Twain's cousin. Indeed, Clemens practiced no profession apart from his activities for the Society. Cyril passed away in 1999 in Kirkwood, Missouri, the community that had been his home for 66 years.
