BiographyEdit

Edward Clarke was born in Glasgow into a family of Irish descent - his father a recent immigrant, his mother’s family having been resident in the Calton area of Glasgow since the early 19th Century. He was baptised in St Mary’s Chapel where he was later married (as his father, Michael, had been) and he was educated at the adjacent St Mary’s School, then under the direct control of the Roman Catholic Church. The nature of his occupation(s) is unknown, but he was highly political from an early age, and much of his energy was devoted to this. He was a conscientious objector during the First World War and he was forced to work on repairing roads instead. He briefly emigrated to Canada - during the 1920s or 1930s - but did not find it congenial and soon returned to Scotland. He was an active member of the Independent Labour Party and of the local Tenants Association. He spent a great deal of his time pleading the cases of indebted Tenants in the Small Debt Court in Glasgow where he met his second wife Jeanie Ferguson Linton. His first wife, Abigail, had died of cancer in 1940. He had an extra-marital affair about this time, producing a further daughter. He was interested in Music Hall and amateur dramatics and loved to declaim comic monologues.
