This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Sculptor, Sadie (Sally) Harfield Clark was born February 22, 1883 in New York City. One of nine children, she left school at an early age and by eleven was working in Woolworths by day and studying by night.  She eventually became a lace buyer and dress-designer.

She met James Lippitt Clark of New York's Museum of Natural History in 1906. The couple married in 1918.  Sally Clark accompanied her husband on his hunting expeditions and became an avid sportswoman.  On her second trip with him to Africa she captured a world record for her shooting of two black-maned lions in two minutes with two shots.  She mastered the craft of taxidermy under the guidance of her husband.

It was not until the 1930s that Sally Clark began to sculpt animals.  She was mostly self-taught with her husband, a sculptor, offering critique.  Most of her work is of African animals though she did visit western states including California, Arizona and Wyoming.  From these experiences, she sculpted grizzlies and other wildlife.  She also sculpted a collection of busts of famous Americans including Amelia Earhart, Charlie Chaplin and Buffalo Bill Cody.

Clark exhibited at the National Academy of Design 114th exhibition in 1940 and with her husband at Abercrombie and Fitch Art Gallery in 1968.  Her work is represented in the collection of the Explorers Club, New York.

Sally Clark died at age 98 on the first of November 1981 in New York City at her home on the Upper East Side.  Her husband had died in 1969.

Because of the distinction of Sally Clark's career as an explorer and sculptor and her dedication to women's education, the Society of Women Geographers of Hunter College, New York, created The Sally Clark Award in honor of the woman"who traveled widely throughout Africa and the Americas in the 1920s and 1930s."
