Hilda Clark was born in Street, Somerset into the Quaker family who founded the shoe manufacturers Clarks.

Hilda Clark trained as a doctor specialising in the treatment of tuberculosis. She was a strong advocate for many political and social issues including votes for women and free health care.

As World War I began, Hilda Clark and T. Edmund Harvey re-established the Friends War Victims Relief Committee (FWVRC) to help civilians displaced by the war. The FWVRC engaged in relief and reconstruction work across Europe. Hilda Clark opened maternity hospitals in which 3,789 babies and infants were cared for. After the war, she helped starving families in Germany and Austria and studied the effects of malnutrition.

She spent her life working in war zones, including Greece, Serbia, Bulgaria, and Turkey, and then Spain after the civil war and France in World War II.

Hilda Clark was honorary secretary of the Women’s Peace Crusade and was involved with the League of Nations and the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom.

Her papers are held in the Library in Friends House.

Today, Quakers aid refugees and train human rights observers to help resolve conflict.
