When William P. Clark died on Saturday at age 81, his family and colleagues mourned his passing—and recognized that the world had lost one of its greatest champions of freedom.
Judge Clark, as he was known to one and all, served as a justice of the California Supreme Court from 1973 until 1981, and later as President Ronald Reagan’s deputy secretary of state, national security adviser and secretary of the interior. In his foreign-policy roles, Judge Clark became one of the figures outside the Soviet empire most responsible for its collapse and for the liberation of millions from the tyranny of communism.
