From the Reno Evening Gazette, Wednesday, January 28, 1976, Front Page:


Jean Clark, Gov. Mike O'Callaghan's confidential secretary and granddaughter of naturalist John Muir, has died of cancer. She was 57.

Mrs. Clark, who died Wednesday, five weeks after being hospitalized, is survived by her husband, Noel, Chairman of the State Public Service Commission, two daughters and one son.

Gov. O'Callaghan said Mrs. Clark was "a remarkable lady" and added her death "is a personal and tragic loss to me and an equal loss to Nevada state government".

Mrs. Clark grew up in Contra Costa County, California, where her famed grandfather had settled. She moved to Nevada in 1957 to take a post in state government. She later became a legal secretary and in 1963 returned to state government work.

O'Callaghan named her his confidential secretary in 1971, his first appointment upon taking office.
