Thread Name: Lyr Req: Bunkhouse Orchestra (Badger Clark)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Bunkhouse Orchestra
His mama (or daddy) named him Charles Badger Clark, Jr., but he always used the name Badger Clark.
I have seen his name on the Internet as Charles "Badger" Clark, but I don't think the quotation marks are appropriate because Badger was his real name, not a nickname.
Here's a bit of trivia that I remember hearing from the tour guide at Clark's house: An Englishman coincidentally also named Badger Clark heard of him and wrote to him and they carried on a correspondence for years.
