Edith was the eldest of 3 children born to General George W. Clark and Sara E. Robinson. After the death of the parents, uncle James S. Clark reared them in his Iowa home.
Edith studied at Grinnell College in Iowa and took coursework in library science at the University of Wisconsin. In 1906, she arrived in Johnson County, WY where she taught school for a couple of years before serving as its School Superintendent for 6 years.
At the time of publication of the Bartlett biography*, Edith was near the end of her first period of elected office as Wyoming's Superintendent of Public Schools. She was elected on her own reputation and professional skills. The public knew about her father only as a Washington D. C. lawyer and one of the chief examiners at the land office; not about his military service career.
