|Clark, John Bates, 1847-1938|
John Bates Clark was born in Providence on January 26, 1847, the son of merchant John H. Clark and Charlotte Huntington. In his early youth, his family moved to Minneapolis where his father engaged in the business of selling farm machinery. Clark came east in the early 1860s to attend Providence High School and Brown University, but after a return to Minnesota to manage his ailing father’s business, he concluded his American studies at Amherst College. Then, from 1874 to 1877 he spent considerable time in Germany studying economic theory with world-renowned scholars. Clark’s European experience had a profound impact on his later economic writings.
