Clark guest lectures, helps develop the annual Burkle Center conference, writes articles, and supports the Center's initiatives. Born in 1944 in Chicago, Illinois and raised in Little Rock, Arkansas, Gen.

In 1966, he was awarded a Rhodes Scholarship to Oxford University, where he earned a Masters Degree in Politics, Philosophy and Economics. During thirty-four years of service in the United States Army Gen. Clark rose to the rank of four-star general as NATO's Supreme Allied Commander, Europe. After his retirement in 2000, he became an investment banker, author, commentator, and businessman. In September 2003 he answered the call to stand as a Democratic candidate for President of the United States, where his campaign won the state of Oklahoma and launched him to national prominence before he returned to the private sector in February 2004.
