William Mansfield Clark Papers 1903-1964


William Mansfield Clark Papers 1903-1964

A long-time member of the faculty at Johns Hopkins, the biochemist William Mansfield Clark made significant contributions to the understanding of oxidation-reduction potentials of organic systems. This collection of Clark's professional papers includes drafts of manuscripts and correspondence, especially with James B. Conant and Barnett Cohen, relating to Clark's life and research. Of particular note are Clark's Cutter lectures at Harvard in 1930 and his correspondence with Eric G. Ball, when Ball worked in Otto Warburg's lab in Berlin in 1937-1938. Clark's participation in professional organizations is reflected in correspondence with the Society of American Bacteriologists and with the Journal of Biological Chemistry, as well as with colleagues Stanley Benedict and Rudolph Anderson. There is some material relating to Clark's lectures and papers, and there are four student notebooks (physical chemistry, optics, thermodynamics/physics), and twenty-three miscellaneous scientific notebooks, 1941-1953.

Clark was a biochemist who, through work on hydrogen-ion concentrations in the 1920's, helped develop and standardize the concept of pH. The common acceptance of this concept throughout the disciplines of chemistry in which the measurement and control of acidity are crucial, made a lasting impact. Later research involved studies in the oxidation-reduction potentials of organic systems. During World War II Clark served as Chairman of the Division of Chemistry and Chemical Technology, National Res...
