He was named by President Reagan, and confirmed by the U.S. Senate in 1984, to serve on the Board of the Legal Services Corporation. He served as Chairman for 4 years. He challenged both the spending culture of Washington and the monopoly of the legal profession, which had denied poor people access to justice. Clark has developed creative ways to generate millions of dollars for urban education, including unique partnerships with Arnold Palmer, the Detroit Tigers, the Detroit Pistons, and the Children’s Scholarship Fund.
