Born on November 22, 1890, Edward D. Clarkson spent many years actively campaigning for social progress towards his view of what United States government policies should be both at home and abroad.  He enlisted in the U.S. Army in 1916 and served in both World War I and World War II.  Later in life, Clarkson took up residency in Cuba, where he spent approximately ten years in a diplomatic fashion.  Clarkson retired from the army in 1944 and earned a master’s degree in history from San Diego State College in 1958.

Clarkson spent the remainder of his life in La Jolla, California.  As a resident for more than 30 years, he was highly active not only as a correspondent but also through participation in organizations such as the American Legion, the Scottish Rite Masons, Phi Alpha Theta and even the La Jolla Beach and Tennis Club.  Edward D. Clarkson died in October of 1969.
