This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Oneonta, NY on Feb. 2, 1878, the daughter of Henry Huntington who founded the Huntington Library & Art Gallery in San Marino, CA. Clara began her art studies in San Francisco at the ASL during the 1890s. Upon deciding on sculpting as a career, she further studied under Leo Lentelli in New York and for three years under Arturo Dazzi in Rome. She was married to Gilbert Perkins for several years until their divorce about 1915, and was related by marriage to sculptor Anna Hyatt Huntington (wife of Archer Huntington who was the son of Henry's second wife). By 1920 she had moved to San Francisco where she attended the Institute of Art, and by 1934 had moved nearby to Los Gatos. She appears to have lived in the the San Francisco Bay area most of her adult life. While on a cruise to England in 1965, she became ill and died upon landing. Member: Nat'l Ass'n of Women Painters & Sculptors; SFAA. Exh: SF Art Inst., 1920; CPLH, 1929; GGIE, 1939. In: Golden Gate Park, (Saint Francis); Huntington Library, San Marino (bust of Henry Huntington); Marlborough School Library, Los Angeles (bas relief); Berkeley Women's Club (bas relief).
