Clarke was an American No-Maj who served as an Assistant District Attorney in the 1920s.[1][2]

On 6 December 1926, Clarke convinced judge Rufus Foster to reconsider his decision to summarily dismiss a grand jury, which had leaked a court document to the press.[1][2] Thus, Foster instead ordered the jury to deliver any indictments they had found within three days, at which point they would be dismissed.[1][2] The incident was reported in the 6 December 1926 issue of the New York Chronicle.[1][2]
