The Board of Directors of the Michener Foundation notes with profound sadness the passing of former Foundation President Clark Davey.
Clark was a legendary Canadian journalist who served as Managing Editor of The Globe and Mail and Publisher of The Vancouver Sun, The Gazette and the Ottawa Citizen.
He was a member of the founding board of the Michener Foundation and served as President from 1993-1998. He also served as Secretary of the board for many years.
Throughout his career Clark demonstrated a deep commitment to the public service journalism that is honoured annually by the Michener Award. In 2009 he was presented with the Michener-Baxter Special Award by the Governor General in recognition of this commitment.
Clark’s contribution to Canadian journalism and his country was enormous.
