Originally a dormitory, Clark Hall eventually became the home for the Student Health Service. The building's name honors Walter Clark Jr.( 1885-1933), one of five sons of Chief Justice Walter Clark who attended NC State, including David Clark for whom the Clark Laboratories are named. Walter Clark is considered the youngest person to graduate from NC State, having earned a mechanical engineering degree in 1903 at the age of 18. Clark later received his law degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and his MS in law from George Washington University. At the age of 21, Clark is said to have submitted the first perfect paper to the state bar exam. In 1916, he served in the North Carolina National Guard on the Mexican Border. During World War I, Clark was a member of the Old Hickory division whose soldiers helped break the Hindenberg line. In 1921 after returning to North Carolina, he practiced law in Charlotte and served in the State Senate.
In 1999 Student Health Services, Clark Hall's former resident, moved to a new facility at 2815 Cates Avenue and Dan Allen Drive.
