Dr. William R. Clark, Jr. Fund

Dr. William Clark became a well-respected Syracuse-based surgeon and health care professional after completing his Yale University and Boston University School of Medicine studies in the 1970s. While serving as a U.S. Army flight surgeon, Dr. Clark cared for American troops in Korea while also establishing an orphanage for area children in need. After he completed his service, he served as Professor of Surgery in clinical practice at SUNY Upstate Medical University for 20 years. He founded and directed the Clark Burn Center at University Hospital and worked tirelessly to promote burn prevention and education in the community. When Dr. Clark passed away, his charitable remainder trust established this fund to perpetually support three of his favorite organizations — Syracuse Stage, Frederic Remington Art Museum and Sonnenberg Gardens.
