Don Clark played at USC and was the Trojans’ football coach from 1957-59. He fought in the Battle of the Bulge and if you talk to anyone that knew him, they only speak highly of him.
So it’s a little sad that he lasted only three seasons as coach and even his best season (8-2 in 1959) was bittersweet because it ended with losses to UCLA and Notre Dame.
That is why I like this 1958 picture, which captures his family, including his six kids. In the photo are his wife, Dorothy, and Don (14), Debbie (10), Diana (6), Denise (5), Dana (3) and Derek (in Dorothy’s arms).
