Dates of existence



British civil servant and Governor, Sir Ernest Clark was during his career, Permanent Secretary to the Treasury, Northern Ireland, 1921-25; Director Underground Railway System of London; Member of the Economic Mission to Australia, 1928-29; Governor of Tasmania, 1933-1945. Clark visited Australia in 1928-29 as a member of the British economic mission invited by the Australian government to examine the economy. As an author of the subsequent report he deeply impressed the premier of Tasmania, J. A. Lyons. It may well have been due to the prompting of Lyons, as prime minister, in 1933, that Clark was offered the governorship of Tasmania, an office which lack of funds had kept vacant for the previous three years.
