Dates of existence



C.H.D. (Charles Henry Douglas) Clarke was born on June 14, 1909, in Kerwood, Ont. After completing his Ph.D. in 1935 at the University of Toronto in the Department of Zoology, he worked for the federal Department of Mines and Resources. His work included field investigations on the muskox preserve on the Thelon River. During the Second World War, Clarke was involved in the North Pacific Planning Project, and advocated wildlife interests in the area of the Alaska Highway, the Canol Road and the Artic Coast. In 1944, he joined the Ontario Department of Lands and Forests, where he was in charge of wildlife research and wildlife management, and, finally, Chief of the Fish and Wildlife Branch. He retired in 1972, but he continued to serve as a consultant on various wildlife commissions and departments. Throughout his life, Clarke wrote extensively on wildlife, conservation and hunting.
