FIELD, Clarence: 1864 - 1931

Clarence Field
   The Grande Prairie district is once again called to mourn the passing of another of its old and highly respected citizens in the person of C. W. Field, well known photographer, who passed away at his home in the East End on Saturday October 24th.
   The funeral which was widely attended, was held on October 27th with Rev. Mr. McNeil of Clairmont officiating. Interment was made in the Grande Prairie cemetery.
   Deceased came to Western Canada from Ohio in 1910 and opened a studio at Ponoka, Alberta. In 1920 he moved to Grande Prairie and filed on land in the East End. Later he opened a studio in Grande Prairie which he operated until two years ago when he moved to the farm.
   Left an orphan at the age of eight years, Mr. Field was nearly 16, when thrown out upon the world to make his own way and as a result became a self-educated man. At the age of 18 he was sought out by the owner of a large art studio in New York City, where he had an opportunity to develop his natural talents as an artist. Mr. Field was a deep and profound thinker and a constant student. He took a great joy in instructing young men and for many years he delivered courses of lectures in various cities with the object in view of helping young men to a higher standard of right living.
   Deceased leaves a wife to mourn his loss.
