Born in Chesterfield, Massachusetts, he studied at Princeton before taking his bachelor's degree at Brown University. He received his medical degree at Castleton, Vermont, and practiced in San Francisco and the Sandwich Islands before settling in Columbia, Missouri, in 1855.

He was married first to Louise Amelia Knapp Smith. After their separation and divorce, he married Catherine Lynch, daughter of a prominent Catholic family, in 1857. They were the parents of two sons.

He served in the U.S.Army from November 1861 to October 1862, when he resigned due to ill health. Shortly afterward he joined the Navy and began serving during the period covered by his diary. Following this period he continued to serve in the gunboats until his health forced him to return home. Clapp died on August 29, 1864, shortly after rejoining his family and moving to Illinois.
