CLARENCE R. CLOUGH, age 83, was found dead in his home in Donnellson, Illinois on April 12, 1973. He had lived alone since the death of his wife in 1966. Clarence had built a very nice free lance model traction engine that he displayed, and at times steamed and ran for his many friends. He had been a subscriber to the Iron-Men Album for many years. After World War I, he worked at the Minneapolis Branch House in Lincoln, Nebraska, then started his own machine shop and built some sawmills in Donnellson. He could tell some very interesting experiences about repairing used engines, that were taken in on trades. All who knew him will miss a kind and true friend.
