Harry and Nora Clark
Harry L. Clark, NIU alumnus, established this endowment in memory of his beloved parents, Harry L. Clark, Sr. and May Dorothy Clark, who provided encouragement and support for his pursuit of higher education and his life-long love of music. Harry L. Clark graduated from Northern Illinois University in 1975 with a B.S. degree in Mathematical Sciences, and in 1979 with an M.S. in Computer Science. In addition to his technical career, Harry maintained his early interest in, and talent for, music throughout his life. From high school band days to jamming sessions with IBM colleagues to occasional professional gigs, Harry enjoyed playing guitar and percussion instruments for fun and relaxation. Harry L. Clark would like to support students studying percussion and/or guitar in order to give them an opportunity to study the field that meant so much to him personally.
