Roland Clark (1874-1957) was known primarily as a etcher of wildfowl, but he also worked in watercolors and oils. His works are some of the most sought-after in the field of American sporting art. Between 1931 and 1938 he wrote and illustrated three Derrydale Press books: “Stray Shots”, “Gunner's Dawn”, and a collection of his graphics, “Roland Clark’s Etchings”. After Connett closed the Derrydale Press, Frank Lowe continued to publish sporting prints by Clark through 1947
