SPENCER CLARK IN THE SOVIET UNION
Spencer Clark in the Soviet Union - curated by Eva Lau, Breithaupt-Hewetson Clark Collection, Waterloo
In the summer of 1931, Spencer Clark went on a trip across Europe as a part of a group study tour led by Dr. Sherwood Eddy. Through Spencer's travel diary, scrapbook, correspondence, and newspaper clippings, it is evident that he was greatly impressed by the Soviet Union. While Spencer's understanding should not be regarded as indicative of the typical Soviet, it is nonetheless a fascinating account of the nation's successes in the eyes of a foreigner on a guided tour.
