CLARK, S.H.H.
Among the earliest local officials of the Union Pacific R. R. after its formal inauguration were: Webster Snyder, general superintendent, soon followed by Samuel B. Reed, and later by C. G. Hammond; H. M. Hoxie, assistant superintendent; J. H. Congdon, general manager; S. H. H. CLARK, general freight agent; Thomas L. Kimball, general passenger and ticket agent; T. E. Sickles, chief engineer; and William Huff, master mechanic. The latter was succeeded by Robert McConnell, April 1, 1867.On April 3, 1878, the Utah Northern of 1871 was sold for $100,000 at public auction to S. H. H. Clark--a Union Pacific officer. Clark paid $4,230.95. in cash on April 6 for court and sale costs; on April 20 he paid another $6,308.05 in cash and $89,600.00 in Utah Northern bonds, for a total of $100,139.00. All the cash and bonds--except for the court and sale costs--were turned over to the railroad's attorneys who had been instructed to divide the proceeds among the creditors of the Utah Northern of 1871; the creditors proved to be principally Dillon and Richardson. S. H. H. Clark then certified that he was acting as trustee for Dillon and Richardson and the other creditors, and the court ordered the cash and bonds to be returned to him. This was then exchanged for stock in the Utah and Northern Railway which had already begun operating the old Utah Northern Railroad of 1871.
