”’John S. Clark”’ was a [[Scottish]] [[entomology|entomologist]] well known for his study of ants in [[Western Australia]] from [[1920]] until [[1956]].

Born in [[1885]] in [[Glasgow]], Clark first arrived in [[Australia]] some time in the late 1910s. On [[1 October]] [[1920]], he started work with the [[Western Australia]] department of agriculture, where he picked up his passion for [[entomology]].

In [[1926]] he became a full-time entomologist at the National Museum in [[Melbourne]]. He spent the rest of his life exploring Australia, during which time he discovered several new species of ant. Ants and other ‘economic’ insects were his specialty, and he continued working and studying until his death on [[1 June]] [[1956]] aged 71.
