Plaques: Howard Clark

Do you know where this plaque is?
The Gossiper's Bench
In memory of Howard "Lefty" Clark March 5, 1894-January 11, 1979 Editor of Rensselaer Republican 1924-1970

If you have any information about Howard Clark or this plaque, I would like to hear about it in the comments. As for the location, it is on a bench in the park mentioned at the beginning of this post.

Beulah Arnott, county historian, collected a number of Lefty's articles in to a soft-bound booklet years ago. His obituaries were famous. He had a knack for writing those and an interesting way of writing news stories according to townies. (Townies are those wonderful folks born and raised in Rensselaer.) I suspect there is a copy in the Rensselaer Library and at the Jasper County Historical Society's building.
