Caption: "Rev. Robert H. Clarkson By Courtesy of 'The Churchman'. From text: "Deserving of a grateful remembrance as are all these, I feel like giving first place to Dr. Robert H. Clarkson, of St. James's Episcopal and later the revered Missionary Bishop of Nebraska and Dakota … there was never any question where Robert H. Clarkson stood. His voice from the first was a trumpet call, and he fairly swept his church with him ... Once, in his zeal, he made the promise from the pulpit that the church would rear a memorial to those of the congregation who fell in defence of their country; and this promise was in after years fulfilled.
