Coca-Cola Model--Hilda Clark (1872 May 5, 1932) was an American model and actress. She was born to Lydia and Milton Edward Clark. As a young adult she moved east to Boston to become a popular music hall songstress and actress. However, Clark became famous as a model in 1895 when she became the first woman to be featured on a tin Coca-Cola tray. Hilda Clark remained the advertising "face" of Coca-Cola until February 1903 when she married Frederick Stanton Flower (#40626725) in New York.

Flower was a niece of New York Governor Roswell P. Flower. Clark had been an active socialite in Boston but retired from the stage when she married. Frederick Flower was a millionaire, involved in banking concerns and director of several railroads. Flower died in December 1930. Hilda Clark died on May 5, 1932, in Miami Beach, Florida.
